Comment: 15 or 16 yo Giuseppe Sulfaro as 12 yo Renato in this bedroom. The wooden headboard is very high, looking much lower on pic 2.

Good movie with some very interesting scenes. Renato has to oil the noisy bedsprings. Also good scenes outside with friends. But sadly no siblings in this bedroom.

Won a Golden Globe and 2 Oscar nominations. Music by Ennio Morricone. Also note the phonograph next to his bed.

I bought this DVD many years ago but don’t watch it often. I don’t know why. I prefer Respiro (2002) aka Lampedusa which is quite similar and has brothers (rating 6).

The DVD has lots of extras (55 minutes) and even a DVD-ROM part.

Room rating 5, plot much higher. A have few 1940s entries. And this is the first 40s non-USA entry yet.
