PLOT & Review:
From a village of the Murge (Apulia) three telegrams are sent: “Mom died. Your father. ”
The three Giuranna brothers return to the family home after many years of absence.
F. Rosi tells another story of the South, but from within, poised between private and public. But the first dimension is expressed, the second only declared.
A parable about today’s Italy, sincere, honest, always interesting, sometimes involving.
Written by Rosi and Tonino Guerra on a cue from the story “The Third Son” by Andrei P. Platonov.
Subtitles:French, custom English
