The Night of the Shooting Stars

1982 Rated R 1hr 47m

Set during the waning days of World War II, this resonant Italian allegory unspools through the eyes of a 6-year-old girl (Sabina Vannucchi) who chronicles the exodus from her Tuscan village, the coming of the Allies and the clash between the peasants and the fascists. Omero Antonutti co-stars as Galvano, who leads a small band of refugees into the hills to escape the vindictive Nazis and look for the forces of liberation.
