Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

9 stars (our of 10)
14 April 2007 | by richlionSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at the 2007 Italian Film Festival (now in its third year at Washington University in St. Louis) and found it to be an extraordinary work of art. With a strong script, great acting, complex characters, and wonderful-looking actors--as only the Italians seem to be able to do!--it deserves to be seen by the widest-possible audience, and I can only hope it gets shown, if it hasn't already, in cineplexes across the country. (Dream on, right?!) Even though the movie is, in part, an old-fashioned murder mystery, in reality it's a story about relationships--between lovers, parents and their children, among brothers, and, probably most poignantly, the centuries-old love affair Italians have for each other and their uniquely rich way of life.
