Masterpiece...A great example of cinema...AL DI QUA shines in its Franciscan simplicity...Its technical subtlety aspires to Pasolini’s sublime.

A homeless man is found dead in his makeshift bed on the streets, adjacent to a hospital where he often stopped. Forty of his homeless friends enter the hospital as a united front to pay their final respects.

After a visionary funeral march down the hospital corridors, they denounce the fact that they have been unemployed for many years and are sleeping on the streets. The finale is miraculous, in the style of Vittorio De Sica, made with special visual effects.
