(out of 5)

The generational saga of an Italian family, beginning with poor origins on a dirty farm through to the wealth they achieve thanks to a heartless crime. The Taviani brothers have fashioned a memorable narrative in this gentle drama that never makes a strong enough impression. French-American actor  plays a dual role as a soldier and his grandson.
