Director: Francesco Rosi; Cast: Philippe Noiret, Michele Placido, Vittorio Mezzogiorno, Andréa Ferréol, Maddalena Crippa, Rosaria Tafuri, Marta Zoffoli

three-brothers-1981Tre Fratelli is a slow-paced family drama in which three sons travel to their southern rural family home to attend their mother’s funeral and in the process, each contemplates aspects of their own lives. As a film about self-reflection and grieving, Rosi also interweaves issues of politics, justice and labour throughout each of the brother’s stories via flashbacks and dream sequences – though each is left unresolved (Klaus Ming September 2016).
