Why We Love It

This is a great story about Italy in WWII, but above all, it's a love story. Based on a true story, at the time it came out, the actual couple was celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. Shot on location in Italy, there are magnificent views of the Tuscany scenery. An excellent WWII film without all the violence and gun fighting of typical war movies, it's suitably clean for the whole family to enjoy.

Description

After being released from an Italian prison, British officer Eric Newby suffers an ill-timed injury, forcing his fellow soldiers to leave him behind. Injured and alone, Eric is challenged with finding his way out of Italy before the Germans arrive. The local Italians do their best to come to Eric's aid. Among them is Wanda, a beautiful local girl who teaches him Italian to help him blend in. Slowly, their small friendship turns to romance, but with the Germans hot on his trail, they are kept apart, not knowing what will happen.
