The Story of Boys and Girls is a film written and directed by Pupi Avati and set in Italy in 1936. A soon-to-be-married aristocrat and his country-raised fiancee are toasted at an elaborate engagement dinner held at her parent's farm. As their relatives and friends partake of a 20-course banquet, the children run through the fields convinced that they hear the fluttering of angel wings above them. Winner of Italy's Donatello Award for best screenplay, The Story of Boys and Girls hurrahs the vitality and variety of family feeling along with the ample diversions of sex, religion, and fellowship.
