The Way We Laughed

Movie Summary

Rating:
Not Available
The Way We Laughed is a coming of age picture from Italy that details the changing relationship between brothers as Italian culture shifts from being a post-war recovery society to being a modern G7 economy during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Winner of the Golden Lion award at the Venice film festival, the picture compares favorably against some of the other great Italian films of the 20th century. The older brother, Giovanni (Enrico Lo Verso), is a Sicilian traditionalist who moves to Northern Italy to help his brother succeed at his studies. His love for his brother blinds him to the fact that Pietro (Francesco Giuffrida) isn't as strong a student as Giovanni necessarily thinks he is. As time goes on, Giovanni is able to get better jobs as the economy improves and his Mafia connections grow. His income and his support for Pietro ultimately help Pietro commit himself to graduating from university. Like many popular European films, interpersonal relationship development is intelligently handled.moreless
