Details

Italian drama written and directed by Ermanno Olmi. On a turn-of-the-century farm in Italy, various families work for the farm owner and are paid according to their productivity. One particular family has a gifted young boy, who they decide to send to school rather than force into manual labour.

However, with the child having to walk many miles to get to the nearest school, the family are forced to make him some wooden clogs made from tree branches while also risking the wrath of the strict farm owner. The cast includes Luigi Ornaghi, Francesca Moriggi, Omar Brignoli and Antonio Ferrari.

Package includes DVD and Blu-ray editions.
