Rocco and His Brothers (1960) Poster

Rocco Vidolazzi: Luca Parondi


  • Luca Parondi : Rocco's a saint, but what can he do in this world? He won't defend himself. He's so forgiving. But one mustn't always forgive.

  • Rocco Parondi : I'd like to make a toast to the day, which is still far away, when I can go home. And if I won't be able to, I hope one of us will be able to return to our land. Maybe you, Luca.

    Luca Parondi : I'd go back with you.

    Rocco Parondi : Remember, Luca, ours is the land of olive trees, of moon sickness, and of rainbows. Do you remember, Vincenzo? Before starting to build, the head mask throws a brick at the shadow of the first person who happened by.

    Luca Parondi : Why?

    Rocco Parondi : As a token of sacrifice, so that the house may be built solidly.

  • Luca Parondi : I was a kid when we moved here. It was Simone, not Vincenzo, who made me understand that in our hometown we were beasts of burden, confined to work in blind obedience. He said nobody should be a slave and we must never neglect our responsibilities.

  • Luca Parondi : If Rocco goes back to our town, I want to go with him.

    Ciro Parondi : I doubt he'll see our hometown again. You might, some day. But what do you think you'll find there? Things will change there too. Even there, they realize that things must change. Many have little faith in a changed world, but I do.
