Did You Know?


Vittorio Taviani was unable to be on set during principal photography due to health reasons, which is why Paolo Taviani is listed as the sole director in the closing credits (although the opening titles credit the film to both brothers). Vittorio was also unable to attend the film's Italian premiere and press conference at the 2017 Rome Film Fest, and passed away five months later. See more »

Boring. Slow. Not good at all
11 May 2018 | by lallo-2See all my reviews

As per the title, the movie could have been a great opportunity to describe the other reality than the war however is slow, flat, boring, zero changes, no texture. Se pictures are good and some scenes have a potential. Nevertheless the actors are not well directed.
