The film "100 Nails" is a masterpiece of cinematic beauty. One does not need to completely understand Italian to appreciate the artistic mastery of the Director and the skill of the actors. Many of the actors were unknown locals, who portrayed life in a small Italian village with feeling and power. Raz Degan, as the disillusioned professor, gave the performance of his career, portraying the emotional distress of one torn with conflict. The direction was superb; utilizing the natural talent of the actors with the magnificent choice of locale. It took a lot of courage to produce a skeptical view of religion in a Catholic country, and the film was created in taste, with a monumental message. This is a film everyone can appreciate. Marvelous.
