The one where three brothers mother dies and they all come back for the funeral.

This film was quite a downer. It portrays a family dealing with the loss of a mother and a wife. As it moves through the traditional Italian grieving process, we see the men left without the woman who helped them in so many specific ways. I was particularly moved by the husband who had lost his wife of so many years.

un amaro ritratto dell'Italia alla fine degli anni settanta, fra sogni di fuga e impegno civile. Si sente (forse anche un po' troppo) la mano di Tonino Guerra

Too allegorical for my taste. Whereas 4 Months..., for example, could be read as a personal story and as a story about totalitarianism, this movie seems only to be read on larger terms. There's no human connection with any of these characters, and so while their dialogue is more intelligent than a Hollywood movie where the characters are 2-D, the effect is still distancing and disappointing.

An interesting portrait of society in Italy

An extremely touching film, a beautiful film about a family but not revolving around them and instead focusing on each of their individual tales, a love story of the father and the idealism of the brothers. Francesco Rosi is a huge inspiration when it comes to this and his movies stand out in terms of being so overtly clear in its tone and yet subtle in approach, beautiful in structure.

Intesting movie about love and politics in a modern Italy. I didn't know much about the subject, but it has made me want to look into it.

[font=Century Gothic]Skillfully directed by Francesco Rosi, "Three Brothers" is a subtly powerful and surprisingly unsentimental movie that flows smoothly between the past, present and future about three brothers returning to the small village where they grew up for their mother's funeral. Raffaele(Philippe Noiret) is a judge about to hear a high-profile terrorism case. Rocco(Vittorio Mezzogiorno) is a social worker who works with juvenile delinquents. Nicola(MIchele Placido) is a factory worker who is separated from his wife. He has brought along his daughter, Marta(Marta Zoffoli), along for the ride. It is interesting to note that the brothers represent different stages of criminality. Rocco tries to reform troubled youth. Nicola is moving closer to violence in his union activities while Raffaele sits in judgment. The brothers live in the cities of a violently shifting Italy while the town they grew up in has changed very little over the years. To the villagers, the outside world exists only as something to be watched on television.[/font]
