Trivia

This marks the first time Avati directs a movie adapted from one of his novels. Previously, he had done the opposite, adapting some of his movies ("La seconda notte di nozze", "Il nascondiglio", "I cavalieri che fecero l'impresa"...) into novels. See more »

And what is it? A movie?
15 December 2019 | by riaku-itSee all my reviews

Superficial and discounted. Terrible acting, elementary history and meaning none. As a mysterious film there is no tension, as a horror film there is no terror. Alessandro Haber and Andrea Roncato make small cameos: Haber is fine but does not shine as usual; Roncato, compared to the protagonists, looks like an Oscar-winning actor. In a peasant context, in 1952, they still go around with oil lamps (ok), but they also have many vans and cars, even the father of the little protagonist. Completely unreal: they were very poor, at most they could afford a cart pulled by a mule. I am Italian and I know well the situation of the villages of those years, even a bicycle was considered expensive (see "Bicycle Thieves" by Vittorio De Sica, 1948). Luckily I didn't go to see it at the cinema: after 5 minutes I would have gone away cursing and asking for a refund. Garbage.
