Young Giuseppe and Giorgio are protective of their mother Maria - after their father had been taken away by gangsters several years ago. Even if Maria is resigned to the fact that he is no longer alive, the boys are in denial, and when she meets and falls in love with a casting director from Rome, they go to extraordinary lengths to discourage her lover. This leads to an unfortunate accident in which the casting director gets killed and Giorgio, blinded. When Maria discovers he truth, the shock causes a miscarriage, and she too dies, leaving Giuseppe to take care of his brother from a very young age. He becomes protective of his brother too, and when they grow up, a time will come when they will need to go their separate ways.
The film has some decent production values, and the cinematography offers some great views of both Sicily and Turin, where bulk of the events take place. On the whole, the film is well made and worth watching. The compilation includes some non-nude scenes too, but they are blog-related, and cut from my DVD.
