It also tells the story of Gino Bartali, the charismatic Italian sports idol and Tour de France cycling champion, whose role in this history was never revealed in his lifetime.

great movie
11 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Gino, thank you so much for your movie. You was in Cinema Village theater when me and my wife saw it. We were too moved to talk about to you. Since then, I think about it every day. I thank to all Italian people who helped Jews, children, families in the face of biggest genocide in history. Yes, Italian people are real heroes! While I always was sympathetic to Italy, love the language, traditions, county I am particular glad to learn that the people and country which I always loved are also great humanists and my heroes.

Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all Italians, the country, to you for your movie. You, all people who helped to Jews, generations of their children will be blessed.
