This film was inspired by an Italian novel which relates the physical and psychological misery of a family and mainly of the young hero subjected to the violent domination ot the father and forced to give up school to become a shepherd in a very lonely and savage countryside ,with no human contact .The hero will rise and revolt under the oppression .
A very strong , sometimes shocking film which denounces the evils caused by extreme poverty and analphabetism , directed by the talented Taviani brothers ,it won the Palme d 'or at the cannes Festival of 1977 and other prizes

So deeply realistic, it's mythical.

I only saw the first 15 minutes or so of this film but could not stomach watching the violence against the child and the simulated sex scenes with the animals.

This is a very powerful and moving film, wonderfully acted. This particular copy suffers from a problem with subtitles, where the bottom line is not always visible.
