Review

Internationally feted on release, this is the remarkable true story of a young Sardinian boy, so dominated by his father that he grew up not only an illiterate shepherd, ignorant of the outside world, but, in his long sojourn alone guarding the sheep, lost the power of speech. He returned from national service a wiser man able to liberate himself from his father's tyranny. Brilliant.
