Unforgettable ending.
18 September 2008 | by jolypmSee all my reviews

Saw this movie on TV a long time ago. I will never forget it. Specially the ending. It was so unexpected. So touching. So frightening. It hits you right in the solar plexus. And stays with you for always. I guess I can say this without spoiling anything since I am NOT telling what happens. Of course, I wouldn't. It must have been based on a true event in Italy during the Second World War. The acting is superb. Specially by Elisa Cegani and Mariella Lotti. If you have a chance to see it somewhere, don't miss it! It is worth seeing it. Even if it has been made 62 years ago, you'll be able to agree with me and enjoy a great story.
