On the occasion of First World War centenary in 2014, Ermanno Olmi revisits the famous battle of Asiago, fought between Austrian and Italian forces on the Alpine Front. The scene takes place on the Italian Northeastern Front in 1917 during World War I where events occur in one single night.The story that develops is unpredictable; it shows the long idle moments of the war. The peaceful scenery of the snowy mountains becomes a place of death and sorrow. Since the past belongs to memory, then each one of us can evoke it through its own judgment.
