Storyline

1943, an estate north of Firenze. The weight of the world is on the shoulders of Penny, who's about 10. An orphan, she must watch over her little sister when they go to live with her aunt and uncle. Penny's a Catholic, and worries about her uncle's soul. He's Jewish, progressive and a free thinker, a fair boss, and devoted to his family. He can be stern, so Penny also worries that she'll never please him and that he won't love her. Then, after the Allied forces land in Sicily and the Germans begin their retreat, Penny must worry about her uncle's life. She tries logic and appeals to human decency. Can a child keep the sky from falling? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Jeroen Krabbé's name is misspelled "Jeroun" in the opening credits (which pronounced in Italian probably sounds more like the way his name should be pronounced). See more »

Goofs

When Wilhelm is playing chess with the general, he performs a mate in 3 beginning with a rook sacrifice. However, on the last move he is seen to move his knight to the wrong square, giving only check instead of checkmate. There is a continuity error here, as in the next shot we see the knight on the correct square, delivering mate. See more »

a kind of summer day
29 July 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

touching, nice, profound, dark, fresh. childhood in war time. the theme is not new. and the traps are not rare. but this film is result of good and wise work. because the taste is different, the colors are perfect instrument for impressive sketch, the performance of little actors is seductive. the heart of childhood, the mixture of games, innocence and fear, the nuances of love, the Italian spirit, the last scenes - all are more than adaptation of real fact. it is not great but gentle. it is not exception but delicate sketch of a tragedy like a ferns in herbarium. discover of world and the shadow of death. all as special story of two sisters in the house of second family. in fact, a movie like a summer day. hot, sweet, bitter, profound, with brilliant sun and gloomy clouds. all in the skin of very cold rain.
