    This is a really interesting hidden gem of a film, with a common theme (betrayal and redemption) deftly woven into a unique storyline about cutthroat produce merchants. Imagine Wages of Fear, but with apples instead of nitroglycerine (Wages of Apples?), and some elements of film noir thrown in for good measure. "Figlia" - the ultimate ruthless businessman - is a wonderful character you'll love to hate. My only quibble is with the too-swift, extra-happy ending. 9 years 9 months ago

    The brutal tragedy of simple and honest people. Harsh realism.
