Southern Italian 1950’s based drama

Best watched in Italian with English subtitles to experience (some poor translation into English which doesn’t help grasp nuances and meaning) some of what was intended by the director. The context of suppressed inherited generational traumas, patriarchal honour, communal hierarchies of power and complex inter-family stories is honest, sobering and probably quite typical of the era and location, I didn’t find this observational drama bad at all…
