But one day German army orders to Di Maggio a massive bombing in order to destroy completely the village, killing all its occupants and inhabitants, including the girls for which the Italians fallen in love.

the clash
5 May 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the clash between different mentalities. naive, seductive, adorable. first, of course, for the performance of Toto. than, for the wise way to present the modern war in a...Medieval knight. and for the remember of basic moral virtues. in fresh manner. in gentle way. because, in essence, it is a film about people. only about people. ironic, wise, honest, almost poetic. and this is the great virtue of a film who remains great against the passing time as a moral lesson and noble message about the real important things.
