Novecento / 1900 (1976)

Alfredo is from a family of landowners led by his grandfather, also called Alfredo, while Olmo is an illegitimate peasant. Olmo’s grandfather, Leo, is the foreman and peasants' strong man who verbally and spiritually carries out a duel of wits with grandfather Alfredo. Young Alfredo despises the falseness of his family, in particular his weak but abusive and cynical father Giovanni, and he and Olmo, who is being raised as a socialist, become friends throughout their childhood, despite the social differences of their families. However, when their fathers die, the estate where they grew up is quickly overtaken by unrest and consequently violence as Italy begins to undergo major changes….
