A good movie

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since it did win the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival and since it was available on Netflix, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, first of all, Netflix really screwed up the aspect ratio for this movie so, unfortunately, I didn’t really have the best viewing conditions. On top of that, it was a 3 hours long very contempl... read more

Description: In this lyrical and tender Italian film written and directed by Ermanno Olmi, we enter a rural tenement in the Bergamo region in the late nineteenth century. The families living there are the equivalent of sharecroppers who must give two-thirds of their produce to the landlord. A peasant and his wife are told by the Catholic priest that they should send their son to school even though this means that he will not be able to help in the fields.

" Notes: Unfortunately, Netflix really screwed up the aspect ratio for this movie so, unfortunately, I didn’t really have the best viewing conditions. On top of that, it was a 3 hours long very contemplative movie with no plot whatsoever so it turned out to be rather challenging. Anyway, the end result was basically some hyper realistic portrait of the peasants life in Italy at the end of the 19th Century (in fact, all the actors were some peasants coming from the region where it was filmed).
