Synopsis

Adapted from Giovanni Verga’s novel "I Malavoglia", the second feature film realized by Visconti is universally acknowledged as a masterpiece of post-war Italian cinema. Entirely set and shot in a small village on the east coast of Sicily and using non-professional actors, "La terra trema" tells the story of a fishing family which attempts to escape from poverty and exploitation by becoming the owner of its own boat, thanks to the new ideas brought by the elder son ‘Ntoni. When the boat is destroyed in a storm, the Valastro family is ruined. But ‘Ntoni is able to learn from the events and he becomes aware of the importance of a common struggle in order to overthrow exploitation.
