Cristo si è Fermato a Eboli (Christ Stopped at Eboli) Reviews
Christ stopped at Eboli is a beautiful film. It deals with the glimmer of hope Levi brings to the peasant community he finds himself in as he crosses the barrier between the North and the South, and the rich and poor.
However, unlike the way I'm making it sound, the film has a far more subtle and complex beauty in its style, directed carefully and thoughtfully by Rosi, and also encompasses a genuinely endearing Italian humour and presenting a moving spirit among an abandoned community.
Fantastically performed, lovingly filmed and genuinely moving. Wonderful. A tragedy that according to Flixster 91% aren't interested...
