Neorealism takes the form of a goodhearted comedy that revisits tragic events (which took place a mere two to three years before the film was put out), moving from the city to an idyllic rural world, but one that has its dark side too. In a village in the Apennines at the end of the War, Uncle Tigna, a farmer, hides two American soldiers in his home, one of whom is black. The old man helps the two fugitives, not for the sake of justice or freedom, but because they “have a family”. He finds himself caught between the suspicions of a fascist official; the cautious support of a socialist doctor; and the cautious parish priest.

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 86 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
