"Christ Stopped at Eboli"
Directed by Francesco Rosi
Rosi's brilliant film stars Gian Maria Volonte as
Carlo Levi, a political exile banished to a village in southern Italy by
Mussolini, where he experiences the alien world of poverty and despair. A
deeply moving film full of faith in human values, and a subtly critical
portrait of modern Italy. Co-written by Tonino Guerra (Ulysses' Gaze,
L'Avventura). Italian with English subtitles. 150 minutes.
