Cristo si è fermato a Eboli (1979)

»What are we doing here?«

Purpose, compromise, growth. An intellectual city man is forced into exile among the poor and isolated in countryside surroundings as backwards as heavenly. The movie probes and questions dualities of State and Individual, center and periphery, urban and rural, secular and religious, »advanced« and »primitive«.

Beautiful, humanistic, intelligent – but ultimately not interesting enough for my political book.
