Trivia

The plot is somehow inspired by Brothers Karamazov: there is a murder and four brothers, whose temper is similar to Dostoesvkij's character temper. But the killer is not the same. See more »

Goofs

Near the end, when brothers are throwing little stones at the bell, the sky is all orange and clearly after sunset in the first shots. Immediaately after it turns light blue and more brilliant, as in the end of the afternoon. See more »

Very well-done example of good Italian movie!
21 March 2006 | by giordano-8See all my reviews

Very well-done example of Italian movie! I appreciated the quite unusual plot, the various typical characters and the good performances of the actors. Above all the director Sergio Rubini keeps for himself the intolerable figure of a dirty, rotten and slippery loan shark. And Bentivoglio is perfect as usual with his tired face of the man who has already seen them all... The bad unchanging habits of a southern Italian village are balanced by the warmly beating hearts of these four different brothers, all partially crazy for the way they react to the negative aspects of the society in which they are forced to live. A strong suggestion to have a look!!!
