The new Scola's movie shows the dramatic life of a group of Jew people during the Italian Fascism. It shows the great difficulties of living in Italy for a Jew retailer and his family after the enforcement of Racial Laws in 1938. It shows the friendship among a Catholic Italian (Abatantuono) and a Jew one (Castellitto).
I liked the movie very much, it is perfectly acted by Diego Abatantuono and Sergio Castellitto and Gerard Depardieu in a little role as Abatantuono's brother.
In spite of the plot, that is not very original, the film tells with efficiency about the human tragedies of those years. It remembers us once again how much cruel can be the discrimination.
And we all have to remember it, especially now.
