Eureka Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Sky is Falling for 16th February 2004 with a retail price of £19.99. A multi-award winning film, The Sky Is Falling (Il Cielo Cade) is the beautifully evocative coming-of-age tale adapted from the acclaimed autobiographical novel of the same name by Lorena Mazzetti.
Starring Isabella Rossellini and Jeroen Krabbe, the entire story is viewed through the eyes of the central character Penny and the simple events which take place in the summer of 1944 until the tragic conclusion of the War. These include the friendships established with the peasant children, school, religious problems, the growing awareness of a cruel, inescapable reality, the discovery of the first furtive contacts of love and the magnetism of Uncle Wilhelm, an idealistic intellectual and advocate of justice.
