Miracle in Milan
Old lady Lolotta finds an abandoned baby in a small cabbage patch, and decides to take him to her home. She names him Totò. But years later, Lolotta unexpectedly passes away, and Totò is sent to an orphanage. Though Totò now has lost his family for a second time, it shows that Lolotta has raised him lovingly and well, when even all the loneliness in the world can’t discourage the young boy.
Miracle in Milan is a unique fable by the Italian master of neo realism, Vittorio De Sica. Upon it’s release, it was awarded with the Grand Prize at Cannes Film Festival.
