Living in the shadow of industry, surrounded by the blighted landscape of the mechanized wasteland, Guiliana faces the full horror of existential doubt alone, and modernist culture offers her no solace, comfort, or concrete prescription to alleviate her anguish

Una voce femminile fuori campo racconta. In una notte di San Lorenzo (10 agosto) del '44, nel paese di San Miniato nella campagna toscana, i tedeschi, che stanno evacuando, convincono il vescovo a raccogliere la gente nella chiesa con la promessa di lasciare tutti in vita. Ma una parte della popolazione dà retta a Galvano, che preferisce la fuga (con ragione perché la chiesa salterà in aria). I fuggitivi, dopo un percorso di paura con poche parentesi di serenità, riusciranno a raggiungere la libertà. Un bellissimo film dei fratelli Taviani premiato a Cannes. Un film corale, con momenti di alta poesia, dovuta anche alla bravura degli attori fra cui spicca Omero Antonutti nel ruolo di Galvano
