Although it spins in circles for too long before its climactic wheat-field shoot out, no other Taviani brothers film so vividly captures the prevailing ethos of their life's work: "Living may be tragic," Vittorio once said, "but life isn't."
Lyricism, poetry, brutality, reality, fantasy; mixed and slowly stirred, make for a special mood
One of the greatest films of the 1980s.
...not enough to sustain our interest through a 105-minute movie, despite the obvious earnestness with which the brothers have imbued the story.
A parabolic Italian film about freedom, death, and grace set during World War II in the Tuscany region of Italy.
A group of Italian villagers struggle to survive the final days of WWII, battling Nazi sympathizers and anxiously awaiting the arrival of the American soldiers who will liberate them.
La Notte di San Lorenzo is a good film that may have been great had it be given a larger budget. For example, the highly anticipated American army is represented by a whopping TWO soldiers (neither of which ever utter a word), war planes are heard but never seen, an explosion in the church is represented by loud sound effects and a little smoke coming out of the door, etc., etc., etc... Still, you have to credit the Taviani brothers for making the most of what they had and giving us a film that seems to live well beyond it's means.
this movie has action, tragedy, war, humor, love, lust, history, fairy tales, heroes, blissful children, time-chastened old folks, prayers & desperate wishes, class conflict, (meaningful) politics, cold-blooded murder, tarnished violence for freedom, and the heritage of every kind of Italian movie
