Il taglio del bosco (1963)


It is the simple story of a group of woodcutters in the Grossetano area with their problems, individual stories, small and big intimate dramas. It is a film with a Rossellini-style realist slant where, without falling into scenicism, the importance of the landscape is combined with the psychological subtlety of the characters and the lucid and critical description of their behaviour.

    Again, thanks for restoring this film to us. Another great pre–FISTFUL Volonte performance with actor and director fully attuned to the nuances of the Neo-Realist tradition a decade after its demise. Boh worked in the commercial genre, but they knew the importance of this key Italian tradition and wished to continue it whenever the opportunity arose.
