After ten years of trying, he finally adapted Giorgio Bassanis celebrated novel to great acclaim and an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Set at the outbreak of War, De Sicas film tells the story of the Finzi-Continis, an aristocratic Jewish family protected by the walls of their idyllic estate. Whilst outside Mussolini bans Jews from tennis courts, the Finzi-Continis are not worried as they rally on their own, living in their dreamland.
