“THIS IS ONE OF THE GREAT FILMS, AND ABSOLUTELY WORTH SEEING ON A BIG SCREEN.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice. Time to put on the snowshoes or tires and brave the elements and experience the new DCP 4K restoration (supervised by the director) of the 1979 Italian masterpiece at Cinestudio! A tour de force classic written, directed, photographed and edited by Ermanno Olmi, who cast local farmers and their families to recreate four seasons – with all their beauty, pain, and unending work – in the life of four families working on a grand estate in 19th century Italy. 185 min.

“Its strength lies not just in its ravishing depiction of the changing seasons in a stunning part of Lombardy nor in its human sympathies…but in its approach to the hard life of those exploited by the powerful.” – Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
