Based on I Malavoglia by Verga. The story of a sicilian fishermen family that, trying to buy a boat, loose its house and start to despair. Actors, not professional, speaking the strict dialet, make the film quite difficult, even if the beauty of the images and drama of the story make it one of the masterpieces of our cinematography.
