The Criterion Collection
An elegy of exile and an epic immersion into the world of rural Italy during the Mussolini years, Francesco Rosi2s sublime adaptation of the memoirs of the painter, physician, and political activist Carlo Levi brings a monument of twentieth-century autobiography to the screen with quiet grace and solemn beauty. Banished to a desolate southern town for his anti-Fascist views, the worldly Levi discovers an Italy he never knew existed.
