Christ Stopped at Eboli (DVD)

In CHRIST STOPPED AT EBOLI, director Francesco Rosi’s stunning adaptation of Carlo Levi’s novel, Gian Maria Volontè stars as Levi, one of many intellectuals exiled by the Fascist government during World War II. Banished to Gagliano, an ancient mountain village in southern Italy, Volontè discovers the stark beauty of the landscape as well as the resilience of the peasants, who have lived there for generations. The legendary Irene Papas costars as the earthy Giulia, a housekeeper who teaches the sophisticated writer about the dignity of people who live close to the land. Francesco Rosi offers an authentic but moving story against a historical backdrop, stunningly photographed in rich detail.
