Vittorio De Sica’s The Garden of the Finzi-Continis focuses on an intellectual, aristocratic Jewish family living in Ferrara, Italy in the late 1930s who don’t comprehend the threat of the Nazis until its too late. Moving and tragic it brilliantly depicts a family living an idyllic sheltered existence that is torn apart by the rise of fascism.
