Shalom Italia

Three Italian Jewish brothers set off on a journey through Tuscany, in search of a cave where they hid as children to escape the Nazis. Their quest, full of humor, food and Tuscan landscapes, straddles the boundary between history and myth.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Shalom Italia

    Charming! One of the most upbeat and refreshing Holocaust documentaries ever, as it is about the true experience of three brothers who spent those years hiding in a cave in Italy. But really the film is about their trip back, and about how these sweet old men relate to one another in their golden years, and about how fragile and malleable memory can be.
