World Films

From internationally celebrated directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (Padre Padrone) comes this "extraordinary film" (Los Angeles Times) about a Tuscan village struggling against Nazi persecution during the last moments of WWII is exciting, suspenseful and "majestic entertainment" (Time)!

Six-year-old Cecilia is fascinated by the world and everything in it. And when her family and neighbors feel their village to escape the Nazis, it's the most exciting moment of her life! But the excitement turns to terror when the enemy begins to close in. Little Cecilia prays for rescue, on this, the Night of the Shooting Stars-an evening during which it is said, all wishes are granted. Can Cecilia's wish be granted...or will it be her eternal night?
