The celebrated director of neoreliast masterpieces including Bicycle Thieves and Shoeshine, Vittorio De Sica once again stuck gold in 1970. After ten years of trying, he finally adapted Giorgio Bassani s celebrated novel to great acclaim and an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
Set at the outbreak of War, De Sica s film tells the story of the Finzi-Continis, an aristocratic Jewish family protected by the walls of their idyllic estate. Whilst outside Mussolini bans Jews from tennis courts, the Finzi-Continis are not worried as they rally on their own, living in their dreamland. Giorgio (Lino Capolicchio) is the middle-class Jew in love with his childhood friend, Micol (Dominique Sanda) of the Finzi-Contini family, but she is in love with a gentile and wanting of experiences outlawed by the new government. With Giorgio s separation of Micol, De Sica tracks the loss of an idyllic way of life, from the tennis courts to the waiting rooms where Jews await transportation to the concentration camps.
