Robert De Niro,
The Italian singer and composer debuts as a director, and a good film this is. In the first and probably best half of the movie, we are in the Fifties in Sicily, and Ettore is a young child who lives surrounded by women and seems to be always surprised of what happens around him; it's Sicily told much, much better than Tornatore ever did, seen through the innocent eyes of Ettore. His eyes are not so innocent anymore when we find him some years later, ready to leave his isle, and finally he is in Milan, where he knows some of the most interesting people in town, both in the literature and the music field. Battiato did also a good job with the actors, in particular with Ettore as a child, while Donatella Finocchiaro is not a surprise anymore, after her equally excellent work in "Angela".
