This film is beautifully shot, explores great themes, is exquisitely acted, is very moving, because you really care about the characters. What a pity that in the version I saw, the subtitles (white on white) are illegible so often, and so often inscrutable. For example, in the important scene when Gabriele first encounters 'Milvio', I could not fathom what they were talking about. It is a film that deserves to be seen widely, but it also deserves better subtitling.
