5.0 out of 5 stars Late Taviani, 21 Jun 2011
By 
Mr. P. W. Jones "Square Eyes" (Cardiff, Wales, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Fiorile [1993] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fairly late addition to the output of the great Taviani Brothers. It combines beautiful Italian scenery and strong emotions.The film suggests that the sins of the fathers might well haunt and ultimately destroy their descendants. This may be superstition but the film presents a convincing case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 5 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fiorile [1993] [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this as I remember the Taviani brothers' film Kaos (sadly not currently available to watch on dvd in Europe) as one of the best films I have ever seen. I didn't find Fiorile nearly as haunting and beautiful as Kaos, but I did enjoy it and especially liked the early part set in Napoleonic times. It is a good story, well acted and attractive visually.

The dvd also contains a long interview by Carlo Lizzani with the Taviani brothers talking about their lives and film-making career, which I found interesting and entertaining.

Imagine a legend about greed and love. Imagine a modern family journeying to the ancestral pile. Imagine beautiful Italy and the culture seen through the past as well as the present - magical

4.0 out of 5 stars Fiorile Review, 11 Jan 2011
This review is from: Fiorile [1993] [DVD] (DVD)
One of the best Italian language films I have bought. Very good acting, and a good story which had us captivated throughout. I would recommend this to anyone who likes films that are a little different and that are not aimed at mass markets. (Lovely Italian scenery)

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully understated film., 18 Aug 2000
This review is from: Fiorile [VHS] [1995] (VHS Tape)
The storyline to Fiorile is superb, as you watch it unfold over the decades. Fiorile has a dream-like quality, taking the viewer into the lives of the people that the film touches - you feel the joy and sadness of each character. The actors and actresses play their parts magnificently and really make the film.
