Its quite impressive to see the different stages of a family, how it builds up and changes within itself. The story is marvelous, quite dramatic, although sometimes resembling a bit too much of a soap opera. Nevertheless, you'll sit up watching its 6 hours, and end up asking for a continuation.

I'm impressed that the story didn't go down some of the more cliché paths that other Italian films about family and brothers have already taken. So, from that point it was rather refreshing. There is a subtleness to any message or statement the fi"

"I actually watched 60-70% of this movie, but it's so long that I wasn't able to see the whole movie. I missed the last hour of the movie (it was on television) and now I'm finally going to see the whole thing. "
