Christ Stopped at Eboli (Criterion Collection Blu-ray)

An elegy of exile and an epic immersion into the world of rural Italy during the Mussolini years, Francesco Rosis sublime adaptation of the memoirs of the painter, physician, and political activist Carlo Levi brings a monument of twentieth-century autobiography to the screen with quiet grace and solemn beauty.

Banished to a desolate southern town for his anti-Fascist views, the worldly Levi (Gian Maria Volont) discovers an Italy he never knew existed, a place where ancient folkways and superstitions still hold sway and that gradually transforms his understanding of both himself and his country.

Presented for the first time on home video in its original full-length, four-part cut, Christ Stopped at Eboli ruminates profoundly on the political and philosophical rifts within Italian society between north and south, tradition and modernity, fascism and freedom and the essential humanity that transcends all.
