Synopsis

When Silvano revisits his childhood home for the first time in years, he is soon overwhelmed by memories of the last days of World War II. It was a time when he witnessed murders, formed a friendship with an elderly outcast, and learned that his father was not the heroic man Silvano thought he was.

MUBI's take

Set in both the present and during the final days of WWII, this flashback-structured drama by one-of-a-kind auteur Silvano Agosti reveals the uncertainties of war through the eyes of a child. Based on his autobiographical novel of the same name, Sweet War, Farewell is a heartfelt, mesmerizing gem.
