Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Playwright Ugo Chiti directed this Italian romantic drama set in the summer of 1957. Single mother Anna (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) marries truckdriver Fosco (Lazar Ristovski) and moves with her infant daughter Santina (Jessica Auriemma) to a rural Tuscan coastal community where Fosco lives with his son, sensitive teen Livio (Giorgio Noe). Fosco, who moonlights by robbing Etruscan graves of relics valued by art dealers, is jailed for theft and thrown in prison, a situation which draws Anna and Livio together into a passionate romance. Shown at the 1998 Venice Film Festival (Perspectives).
