Piazza Grande

Sicilia!  (Sicily!)

Italy, France, Germany  ·  1999  ·  35 mm  ·  Black and White  ·  66'  ·  o.v. Italian

A Sicilian man who emigrated to the United States fifteen years ago returns to his hometown in Sicily to visit his mother. On his way, he has conversations with an orange picker in the train station and then with another passenger. When he meets his mother, she discloses revelations about his childhood and her love life. The film brings up to date the lessons of Elio Vittorini’s Conversations in Sicily (1941) through a cinema of words, faces and landscapes in which the political commitment shines through.
