| A Ustinov Classic
A classic war movie covering the period when Italy moving from fighting the allies through surrender to fighting the Axis powers. The charming story is seen through the eyes of Angelo, young aristocrat, who believes he lacks 'il dono di coraggio' - roughly 'the gift of courage'. He runs away from his unit at the front and tries to fit back into a civilian society that has yet to experience the horrors of 'liberation' by the invading armies. The war and its awful results are portrayed honestly. With a light-hearted irony the meaning of courage becomes clearer as different characters strive to live human lives during the turmoil. Angelo finds his true vocation and love in the heart of the Italian countryside. This is a must-see movie....
