Summary
Padre Padrone: Gavino is six when his father hauls him out of school to keep watch over sheep on a barren countryside, huddled in a makeshift hut night and day. The child is constantly abused by his father who treats him as his own father treated him. When the illiterate Gavino is commanded by his father to join the army, he learns a trade and a new concept of life, discovering the outside world and his own identity within itNight of the shooting stars: Set in the summer of 1944 in a small Tuscan town caught between the threat of destruction by the retreating German forces and the advancing American army, this is a bedtime story told by a mother to her child. A recollection of her experience during the war which takes on the quality of fairytale as seen through the eyes of a six year oldKaos: Freely adapted from Luigi Pirandello's Novelle per un anno, the film consists of four separate tales portraying Sicilian peasant life at the turn of the 20th century
