Storyline

Around the year 1500, the Italian priest Don Filippo Neri helps street kids and orphans in his poor little chapel. He is no clergyman by the book, but a true believer in terms good and bad and he teaches this to his children. Neri is not very well-seen by the church and his only "friend" is the dry, humorless Ignatius De Loyola. But Neris real counterpart is the devil himself, working in endless incarnations in Neris direct neighborhood, trying to seduce his kids. His newest kid is the young thief Cirifischio, making a lot of problems. When Cirifischio has an argument with a young boy of a local aristocrat, the boy turns out to be a girl, the young Leonetta, some kind of a sex slave for her owner. Neri adopts her too, and the young people fall in love. 15 Years later, the devil is back and leads Cirifiscio onto a murder. Now lawless, the thief must flee Neri and leave Leonetta back. Neri does the best he can to save the thief's life, but does he have a chance against the fate? ... Written by Silvan Prefetzky

The best movie of the "dream-childhood"
22 November 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a movie like this, except Luc Besson's Léon. It's only fascinating. I saw it a hundred times, but it always shows me something new; something else, whereby i wanna be more than myself. Johnny Dorelli is amazing!!! I love this film! I've never seen an actor parade like he does in this movie... The soundtrack is a wonderful thing too,it's painful and happy at the same time. It always does harm my faith of this world's bigness. It's a tough-provoking fine piece of work, in my opinion. I was at school, named after Saint Filippo Neri, so it reminds me to my childhood, and it'll remind You, to whatever you enjoyed in your childhood.
