Domenico Ragusa in The Way We Laughed

The Way We Laughed

2001 NR

This luminous film from Italian director Gianni Amelio tells the compelling story of two Sicilian brothers displaced in 1950s Turin, Italy. Working-class Giovanni takes any odd job to support his younger, irresponsible brother Pietro and keep him in school. As the economy improves, Giovanni goes against his character and accepts some lucrative yet corrupt deals, while Pietro, now a respectable teacher, attempts to cover for Giovanni.
