The Meadow

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1979
Running time:118 minutes
Director:Paolo Taviani, Vittorio Taviani

Description: The Italian directing siblings Paolo and Vittorio Taviani were responsible for this intriguing slice of working-class life. Saverio Marconi plays Giovanni, a Milan youth who heads to poverty-plagued Tuscany to sell some property. Giovanni falls in with several smalltown rebels, including clerk Eugenia (Isabelle Rosselini in her film debut) and activist Enzo (Michele Placido). A romantic triangle ensues, followed by grandiose dreams of establishing a Utopian youth society--until Reality makes a wake-up call. The Tavianis had originally wanted to film The Meadow with amateur actors, but ultimately gave up trying to coax workable performances from these novices and went with professionals. The film was released in Italy as Il Prato.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
