Directed by Vittorio De Sica, The Garden of the Finzi-Continis is a italian drama that tells the story about a noble family of Ferrara, during the Jewish persecution in Italy’s 1930s. The film starts in a dreamlike state where the Finzi Constinis family are stuck in their own bubble. But not even the wealthy and the privileged weren’t saved from the gradual sink of fascims. Subtly showing us how they descend and lose everything. It’s a story filled with melancholy and sadness. It has great cinematography and an almost downhearted score that enhances the emotion that the film conveys. The movie has one of those endings that is gonna be stuck in your mind for a long time.
