La Discesa di Aclà a Floristella
In 1930's Italy, eleven year old Acla is sold by his parents to a miner, forced to work in a dark labyrinth full of men who enjoy beating boys and using them for their sexual pleasure. A very realistic depiction of life before child labor laws which is based on fact.

So near to reality, even in this day and age. Children have been exploited for ages. The plight of the parents is obvious, but how can 500 lira help them? The clergy shows sympathy, but they obviously have a secret agenda.
Aclá, the hero in this film is brutally abused. We don't know whether he escaped te sulphur mines at long last, although we hope he did succeed. This all happened around 1930. Let us pray that children all over the world will never have to endure what Aclá had to experience.My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
