Italy | 2016 | 84 minutes | Francesco Patierno

Benedict Cumberbatch breathes warmth and wit in recounting the memoir of British soldier Norman Lewis, whose memories of post-World War II Naples form the basis for this haunting evocation of a ravaged land, and the Neapolitan people's struggle to restore their culture and traditions.
