Internationally acclaimed director Vittorio DeSica's Academy Award(r) -winning classic (Best Foreign Language Film, 1971) is gorgeously restored and remastered in Dolby Stereo. Amid the ravages of WWII, the Finzi-Continis, a cultured Jewish family, languish in aristocratic splendor on their Eden-likeestate in Ferrara, Italy. As the political atmosphere becomes increasingly hostile to its Jewish citizens, the handsome and carefree Finzi-Contini children, Micol (Dominique Sanda) and Alberto (Helmut Berger), turn their well-appointed home into a refuge for their young friends. In an atmosphere ofemotional instability, they play out a series of heartbreaking romantic rituals which spiral into tragedy as Fascism gradually descends upon their world. A simply breathtaking film about a way of life now lost forever.
