Storyline

Winter 1943. Martina is small child, who stopped talking since the death of her infant brother some years before. She lives in a rural area of central Italy. Her mother is pregnant again and Martina lives for the arrival of her new brother. Meanwhile, the war is getting closer and closer, forcing the people of the village to tread a difficult path, torn between the partisan brigades and the Nazi Army. On practically the same day as the birth of Martina's brother, the SS start a massive roundup of civilians in the area, an infamous event that will come to be known as the Marzabotto massacre during which more than 770 people were killed in houses, cemeteries and churches.

Well directed and produced, historically accurate
25 April 2019 | by iliasbartoliniSee all my reviews

I just needed to write a direct answer to the review of "sfviewer123" - "Old wine new bottles" who voted 4.0 and claims about some stereotypization of the historical complexity. Please disregard that review.

I can tell you that I grew up in the same region were the facts of this film are based, I read the historical documents, I watched the interviews of the survivals. My grandpa was hiding from the fascist forces in those years. This films captures to a true depth the reality of that conflict form the perspective of the innocent population. It is a unique gem in it's genre and it is historically very accurate of the events of the Marzabotto massacre.
