Boy with musical genius in Italy
25 January 1999 | by Antonio-37See all my reviews

Robin and Guido are two seven year old boys in Italy, in what seems to be the early part of this century. Robin is English, and his rich father has taken a villa in the country with his wife and son. Guido is the son of a local peasant family.

The boys are inseparable playmates, with the rougher and stronger Guido leading the gentle Robin in play.

Robin's father finds out that Guido is a musical genius. The boy first listens to records, then eagerly takes to piano lessons given by the father. Who wonders if he is treating Guido better than he treats his own son. Or if he's elevating Guido to a social position that he could not achieve on his own. Should he grow up to be a concert pianist, or a farmer?

Filmed on location in Italy, the dialogue is in English with Italian sub-titles.
