Movie Info

In 1935, Italian artist and activist Carlo Levi (Gian Maria Volonte) is exiled to the remote village of Eboli for taking a stand against Mussolini's fascist regime. Although intended as a punishment, the experience soon proves to be an uplifting one for Levi. As he uses his medical knowledge to help the local villagers (Irene Papas, Paolo Bonacelli), he finds himself inspired by their spirit and ability to maintain their values while in the depths of poverty.

Audience Reviews for Christ Stopped at Eboli (Cristo si è Fermato a Eboli)

  • Aug 12, 2010
    This film is a well done adaptation of Levi's book, but much of what was felt and experienced had to be summarized in dialogue. Reading the book is vastly more emotional and enlightening, worthy of the highest rating.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Christ Stopped at Eboli" takes place in 1935, just as Italy under Mussolini has invaded Ethiopia. Carlo Levi(Gian Maria Volonte) has been exiled to a remote region of the country for political reasons. He is accompanied by a stray dog, Barone, he meets along the way. He is not the only political prisoner there but he is not allowed to talk to any of the others and his movements are restricted. Overall, he makes the best of a bad situation - painting, writing letters and even taking up the practice of medicine which he once earned a degree in but never practiced.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Christ Stopped at Eboli" is a touching and excellent movie. It is still timely in its discussion of dissent in time of war. I liked that Levi spends most of the film just observing the peasants without comment. The Fascists feel they are superior to the peasants and seek to dominate them but the peasants are the lifeblood of the country. [/font]
