Storyline

San Gimignano, in Toscana, alla fine degli anni '70. La fine degli ideali degli anni '70 vista in un piccolo microcosmo, pensando a platee più vaste di giovani in crisi. Giovanni, magistrato in crisi, si innamora di Eugenia, animatrice teatrale per bambini ; un giorno i due conoscono Enzo, perito agrario con progetti di comune agricola, che si innamora anch'egli della ragazza. I tre provano a vivere un difficile rapporto affettivo a tre, ma tutto fallisce e, così, Eugenia ed Enzo stanchi per le difficoltà incontrate nell'inserirsi nel mondo del lavoro, decidono di partire per l'Africa. Giovanni li accompagna all'aereo e, mentre li vede partire, viene morso dal cane rabbioso di Eugenia : sentendosi ormai solo, si lascia morire a poco a poco. Written by rosebud6

Utopia in Italy.
1 August 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shot in the Tuscan countryside, "Il prato" examines the possibilities of realizing what could be termed Utopian ideals in the Marxist-agrarian context of developing a direct understanding of the land as a source of spiritual and material nourishment. The landscape of multi-towered San Gimignano is used as a focus of the conflicting emotions of three protagonists: an agricultural student, a young woman whose passion is political theatre (Isabella Rossellini), and a former law student whose real passion is cinema. Also starring Saverio Marconi, who had the lead role in the Taviani Brothers' "Padre Padrone" and Giulio Brogi, seen in their "Saint Michael Had a Rooster."
