134 mins – Italy / France/ Germany 2023Director: Marco BellocchioStarring: Enea Sala, Filippo Timi and Leonardo MalteseThe year is 1858. Following Pope Pius IX’s orders, soldiers burst into the Mortara family’s Bologna home to forcibly remove their six-year-old son Edgardo. This is because they had heard from the Jewish family’s maid that she had secretly baptised him as a sickly infant for fear that he would die a Jew and his soul would remain in limbo.
