Night of the Shooting Stars

Uploaded on Monday 1 January 2007


From internationally celebrated directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (Padre Padrone) comes this “extraordinary” film (Los Angeles Times) about a Tuscan village struggling against Nazi oppression during the final days of World War II.

It is the Night of San Lorenzo, the night when dreams come true. While watching shooting stars, Cecilia tells her son about a similar night in 1944, when she was six years old, and the residents of San Martino, her small Tuscan town, defied their Nazi occupiers.
