THE GARDEN OF THE FINZI-CONTINI
by Vittorio De Sica (Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini, Italie, 1970, 1h34, vostf)
starring Dominique Sanda, Fabio Testi, Helmut Berger, Lino Capolicchio
In 1938, the Fascist regime introduces the first racial laws. In Ferrare, a young and affluent set insouciantly gathers to play tennis at the home of the Finzi-Continis, a wealthy Jewish family. The days pass amidst budding romances, disappointments in love and unspoken desires while, outside the walls, the worst is being prepared.
