Editorial Reviews

"Master storytellers of Italian cinema" Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (Padre Padrone) present "an engrossing epic that seamlessly takes the viewer into the past and the present" (The Austin Chronicle).

The Benedetti family has been haunted by a curse for generations. On a long drive to visit their reclusive grandfather, Luigi Benedetti (Lino Capolicchio) tells his children the mysterious story of their ancestors – a tragic tale filled with forbidden love, passion, vengeance and betrayal.

DVD EXTRA: 55-minute featurette "The Boys from San Miniato: Meeting with Paolo and Vittorio Taviani" (directed by Luciano Odorisio).

Also includes an 8-page booklet with Fiorile essay by Italian cinema expert Peter Bondanella.

Fiorile provides a very entertaining and thought provoking story for any viewer whether he be a casual movie goer wanting to be entertained, or a critic looking for a different perspective on human nature and the way he interacts with the rest of society.
Fiolrile follows several generations of a family cursed because of the greedy deeds of some of its early members. But are the following generations truly cursed by a superior being, or are they simply living out their lives equal to their perceived "cursed" potential? In a broader sense, do individuals live lives according to their perceived value and therefore fulfill expectations for good or for bad, or are individuals limited by their potential no matter how hard they try to break a mold that others have cast for them?

Fiorile was a captivating film showing the enchanting scenery of Italy. The plot is complex and wil demand you to submit your entire attention to follow. The dialogue between the actors is poetic and beautiful. The film journeys from the Napoleanic era to present times showing the tragedies that plague a family. A film worth seeing repeatedly...

Acting and story brilliantly done. Very interesting plot, captures your attention and keeps you focused throughout the story. Highly recommended. Too bad American film industry cannot even come close to making good films anymore.

The acting is excellent and the story is unique. I thoroughly enjoyed watching "Fiorile." Beware, you may need a few tissues during this film!

This is very touching for me as my maiden name is Benedetti and this is about a family named Benedetti
