Peace within war. An adult voice narrates a story of childhood during World War II when he lived with his mother, brother, and sister on an estate in Australia's Hunter Valley, his father away fighting, and two Italian prisoners of war staying with them, in effect being his papa. They are joined by Jewish refugees from Berlin, a mother and daughter. There's heat between the German daughter, Rachel, and Joseph, one of the Italians, and there's an attraction between Dorothy, the head of the family, and Alfredo, the other Italian. A carriage accident, a tick, the local martinet, Madame Gutman's pride, and the change that comes with peace threaten to bring tragedy. Plus, father may return. Written by
When filming the scene in the river where Brendan almost drowns and then spits out a tadpole, real live tadpoles were used. In one take, Nic Bryant accidentally swallowed a tadpole and was sick for the next two days. See more »

Saw 15 Amore at Taos TTPIX Festival and everyone in the audience agreed with me that it was the best thing we saw all day! A true movie of the heart - we laughed, we cried, we sang opera! Maurice Murphy is a charming man with many stories to tell, and it was a pleasure to spend time talking with him. This film deserves a wide release, and people deserve the opportunity to view it...over and over.
