Summary: Not just my favourite foreign film, but my favourite film full stop. It might actually be perfect. Beautifully written, masterfully cast, beautifully shot and acted, and utterly charming. Watch it, preferably on a big screen, it will stay with you forever.
Summary: I can never get enough of watching this beautifully made film of the coming of age of a boy in Rural Italy Post WWII. Brilliant acting and directing, the film cannot be fully appreciated until you see the Directors Cut Version. This is a love story beautifully played out over time that will tug at your heartstrings and I challenge you not to shed a tear(s) whilst watching it.

Summary: This has to be my favourite foreign film of all time, however, that refers to the director's cut rather than the shorter original release. It was the director's cut I saw at the cinema first, and it was that version of the film I love. I feel the original shorter release of the film has too much cut out to complete the story. If you like this film and haven't seen the director's cut, I strongly recommend you get your hands on a copy.
