The last film I saw is Nuovomondo, literally “new world” and also known as Golden Door. It is a 2006 drama film based on a family’s migration from Italy to New York. at the beginning of the 20th century. The film, written and directed by Emanuele Crialese, opens on location in Sicily and concludes in the United States.

The story is really touching. This Sicilian family, who cannot speak a single word of Italian and even don’t undertand where they live and that they are Italian, is seeking for fortune in a New World. From some postcards they believe that the USA are all milk and honey. The long trip journey to north America and the scenes in Ellis Island make it possible for the audience to understand the difficulties and struggles that all migrants have to face all over the world, even nowadays.
I highly recommend it. It is an enlightening movie, to be seen!
