Life-affirming story of the troubles of a fishing family on the coast of Sicily, based on the novel by Giovanni Verga.
An impressive contemporary adaptation of the noted 19th-century Italian novel The House by the Medlar Tree by Giovanni Verga, about the trials and tribulations of a fishing family in Sicily, which takes the original story (also the source for Visconti’s La terra trema) and injects modern-day elements (illegal immigrants, contraband trafficking, rock music).
