At War for Love / “In guerra per amore”
A beautifully acted comedy and superb direction makes this film a must see. This touching love story is set in Sicily in July 1943. In New York, Arturo and Flora are in love, but her uncle has already promised her in marriage to Carmelo! Arturo decides to join the Allied forces during WWII to return to Sicily to find Flora’s father and get his blessing for his marriage, overriding the Uncle’s meddling, old fashioned arranged marriage. Finding Flora’s father is a real challenge. Back in New York Flora’s Uncle finds out Arturo’s plans and decides to send someone to Italy to put a stop to Arturo’s plan.
