Visually Beautiful Presentation of a Brutal Setting
19 July 2001 | by (Chicago USA) – See all my reviews

The film presents a brutal, dark view of sulfur mining in Sicily during the early twentieth century. The coarse, vulgar characters contrast with the young boy who is resilient, tough and yet innocent. Visually, the film presents a beautiful interplay of earth colors.
