Beautiful Documentary
16 October 2010 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Beautiful historic documentary of the life in Sicily during the 30ies.

Stunning images on land, people and houses.

The majority of actors are villagers of Sicilian villages.

They speak in dialect, so it is difficult to understand the movie without subtitles. Central part in the movie are the oranges, that nobody wants to buy.

I saw the movie ten years ago and since then I didn't have occasion to saw it again. When I first saw the movie I also thought it is boring. I needed more years to understand that this is a great movie.

Hope everybody would get the chance to look at it, till the end.
