The film is set during the late 1930s: the occasion is the first meeting between Mussolini and Hitler.

As the day segues into night, Antonietta and Gabriele develop a very special relationship that will radically alter both of their outlooks on life.

The Cactuar Film Index: The Scientifically Best 1000 Films

Jumbo Cactuar on Cactuar IslandHere on Cactuar Island, we used all the latest cactuar science to examine films (full length) most highly regarded by humans, taking into account aggregate sites, critical praise, prizes, and number of included cactuars (currently none). Here is what we discovered.

(Cactuar note – Our scientists will repeat this process every year to work out the kinks like recency bias, how the Hurt Locker at number 66, and why Avatar is even on this list. But really, you humans should only blame yourselves)
