Synopsis:
Mariagrazia's two favoured sons have emigrated to America and lost contact with her, whereas she refuses to acknowledge the one who stayed. On the first full moon after her wedding, Sidora (Enrica Maria Modugno) discovers the horrific truth about a husband that she barely knows. A large olive jar is broken, with awkward consequences for owner and repairer alike. A tiny village's inhabitants petition their landowner for the right to bury their dead respectfully. And Pirandello himself (Omero Antonutti) has a conversation with his long-dead mother.

A visual feast - Kaos review by RhysH

Spoiler Alert

Another lesson in the art of cinematography from the Taviani brothers.

Four short pieces and an epilogue based on stories by Luigi Pirandello. Fables set in early twentieth century Italy.

The performances are excellent, there is the history of the Italian nation in the faces of the actors.

The landscapes, the buildings, the interiors, take on characters of their own, each shot framed for the gallery wall.

A truly delightful visual feast.
