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.

A neat historical thriller, fiorile is my first Taviani film, but it probably won't be my last. I hadn't really read much about the film, except to form the opinion that it was probably a routine quality children's fantasy film, so I let it pass me by for years. It is actually a historical thriller about several generations of a family, told as a tale to the children of the present day family, mingled with a caution about the legend's possible effect on the children. There are some rather predictable elements to the film, but the acting is excellent by all, and the sumptuous Italian settings give a feel of Shakespeare mixed with the modern day, and the ending has considerable style. Well worth adding to your collection.
