Abridged Book DescriptionEdit

Tracing the lives of two brothers for nearly four decades, The Best of Youth wastes not a second of its six-hour screen time, giving its characters the space they need to live and allowing their shared story to unfold like a great novel... The Best of Youth never allows national events to outweigh the domestic drama. Rather, Italian history is told through the prism of family, with happenings both personal and political carrying equal weight.
