A good movie

2 years, 6 months ago at May 22 21:32
Since this movie is a classic, I was really eager to check it out, especially since it is included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list. At first glance, it seemed to be about the rise of Fascism in Italy and its impact on the rich Jews living in a small city but De Sica obviously went beyond that but, to be honest, I'm not sure I fully understood what he was getting at.
