Great movie connecting personal with political affairs
One can really feel the 50s of an old Italian town, when watching this movie. Most of the pictures are shot on grey and rainy days, giving the action something of a dull-looking background. Yet before this background we get to know a twelve-year-old boy who is kicked off a boarding-school and comes home to Sardinia. Here, he is looking for some "source of education" and gets in contact with a young emancipated communist woman in her 20s who he, wanting to become a priest, feels somehow attracted to. Immediately he is torn into the on-going dispute between the corrupt DC (Christian Democratic party) and the other parties. In the end we learn, that the young woman's struggle is hopeless in the world she's living in, but that emotional warmth will always be there - even in rough times.
