Miracle at St. Anna is Spike Lee’s American–Italian historical fiction war movie starring Luigi Lo Casio, Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso, Omar Benson Miller, Pierfrancesco Favino and Valentina Cervi. Set primarily in Italy during German-occupied Europe in World War II, this very emotional film tells the story of four Buffalo Soldiers of the 92nd Infantry Division.
Interesting historical part of the story line in this adorable comedy from Pierfrancesco Diliberto (Pif) concerns the landing of the allied forces in Italy in 1943 and what that has to do with the relationship between United States, the Sicilian mafia, and Lucky Luciano.
Roberto Benigni gave new meaning to the term “war games” with this poignant and extraordinary World War II story, the Oscar-winning La Vita è Bella (Life Is Beautiful).
L’Uomo Che Verrà (The Man That Will Come) tells the story of the Marzabotto massacre, an actual mass murder of at least 770 civilians by Germans in a mountainous area south of Bologna, the worst massacre of civilians in Italy during the war. Told from the perspective of Martina, an 8-year-old girl, the movie is much more than just a war story.
