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.

" Coming in at six hours and twenty-three minutes, this is by far the longest film I have watched. The fact that I made it through all six hours in one day and still felt engaged with the film should be a testament to the strength of this family epic. 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"

The movie featured a lot of beautiful locations, and weaved in moments in Italian history into the story and the characters' lives. I would recommend "
