It was wonderful. A very long movie, the time goes so quickly becuase you so absorbed with the characters, their lives and italian history.
I loved the movie right from the first minute to the last minute...I recommend it to everyone and anyone who will listen to me! I would love to go to Italy one day...this movie inspires me...to write my own story whether or not it ever gets to the big screen it will be a memoir for my children`s children...the love of life!
Initially, I began to wonder why I was watching this movie when, finally, the various scenarios came together to become intriguing, warm and compelling. I can hardly wait for Part II. The 3 hours plus flew by to the point where I could not believe it had come to the end of the first part. Great acting, wonderful story and superb music. It is not something you do not rethink the various scenes...a "meaty" movie!
it was so bad
Beautiful, to reminds us that in the end what it is worthy to keep is the beauty of life. It goes through a family story since the 60s untill now. It touches those moments where life changes. Where two brothers sharing the same ideal go on different ways. It shows also the sadness of not knowing if its better to leave others leave in their freedom or help them cause they might not know how to do it the best way. the film is an overwhelming tribute to Italy history and every country should have a mark like this
