"A slice of life - day after day - in Haifa, where Moshe and Didi's marriage is on the rocks, affairs are casual, and Moshe's angst about health, his parents, sex, communication, and business are pervasive and existential. Moshe's mother is Jewish, his father an Arab; his father may or may not sell ancestral land; his wife and mistress have lovers, one is a close friend; much of Moshe's surroundings seem under construction or in renovation. A cousin watches a security monitor without comment. Is there allegory in this portrait of an anxious Israeli approaching middle age?"--IMDb

Chronicle of three Southern Italian youths who, after seeing the fierce Bourbon repression of the uprisings in 1828, swear to devote their lives to the cause of freedom and independence and become affiliated with Giuseppe Mazzini and his La Giovine Italia (Young Italy) movement. They reach Paris, where they come to know the charming Princess Cristina of Belgiojoso, a fervent patriot but also a champion of the rights of women and education for the people. They finally participate in an attempt to assassinate King Carlo Alberto of Savoy and the riots of 1834.
