a lyric film
16 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

great film. it is based on Tolstoy's novel, but when I first saw it I did not know that. I just felt there was something from Russia, maybe the enthusiasm under silence. Sergio, a nobleman with strong self-respect and vanity, found his fiancée used to be a mistress of his duke, he felt deeply hurt and betrayed, and he became a friar. after many years, he was known as a sage, but all faded out when a innocent girl was taken to him. though a Italian film, but the directors express in the most appropriate way the thought of religion and life. They added details like the pear tree at the intersection, applied to the hero's feeling and very lyric. I also very appreciate the scene when Sergio knew the truth of his fiancée, nothing was told, the hero just saw her stood in dark. nothing need to be told.
