“There will be, I suspect, no other movie released this year that can match its endless grace of life, of poetry overheard . . . the film is a life-changing experience.”
– Carlos Valladares, SF Chronicle
Full-Length Digital Restoration
Carlo Levi (Gian Maria Volontè), a painter, writer, doctor, and intellectual, is exiled to Grassano, an impoverished town with only one car and one toilet, in southern Italy. Levi learns to find the humanity in this seemingly backward hamlet. Made for Italian television in four 55-minute parts, it was cut in half for its 1980 U.S. release (to 2 hours — Rosi’s own theatrical cut was 2½) and senselessly re-titled Eboli. This is the U.S. theatrical premiere of Rosi’s complete, uncut epic.
Directed by Francesco Rosi. Screenwriters: Francesco Rosi, Tonino Guerra, Raffaele La Capria, based on the novel by Carlo Levi. Cinematography: Pasqualino De Santis. Italy/France. In Italian with English subtitles. 1979. DCP. 220 mins.
