L’albero degli zoccoli (1978)
Ordinary become extraordinary through understatement’s special allure in this celebration of honest work and true solidarity. Poor toiling peasant families together forms a collective main character as the movie follows several intertwined turn-of-the-last-century story arcs.
But three calm hours of everyday activities are too much, no matter how beautiful the countryside settings or how mild-mannered the good and kind people. Maybe in my book.
