The Tree of Wooden Clogs -
A passionate, moving film, an epic celebration of an Italian family's indomitable spirit, winner of the Grand Prize at the 1978 Cannes Film Festival. The subject of the film is peasant life in northern Italy at the turn of the century, focusing on about a year in the life of three families living on a feudal estate. "A quiet masterpiece" (Newsweek). "The movie, which runs slightly more than three hours, is an accumulation of dozens of experiences of children, adults, old people, village idiots, of harvest times and plantings, of moments of boredom and jealousy, celebrations, fatigue, brief pleasures and mysterious ones. It moves so effortlessly, often with great humor and always with compassion, it seems much shorter than most 90-minute films" (Vincent Canby, New York Times). In Italian with English subtitles.
