VALLEY OF PEACE (1956)

[DOLINA MIRU]
Slovenia, WWII: two young orphans, German Lotti (Evelyne Wohlfeiler) and a Slovenian boy named Marko (Tugo Štiglic), escape from a town which has just been bombed in a U.S. air raid. They have heard someone talk about a lost valley where there is still peace and they set out to find it. Right above them, an African-American pilot parachutes from his fighter plane that was shot down by the German army. Sergeant Jim (John Kitzmiller) discovers the children, but he can't bring himself to leave them to their fate — even if they slow down his escape. Both Germans and Partisans know that the pilot has survived. Which one of them will find him first? (Note courtesy of Cannes Classics.) Best Actor (John Kitzmiller), 1957 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR France Štiglic; SCR Ivan Ribič, Vladimir Koch, France Jamnik. Yugoslavia, 1956, b&w, 82 min, DCP. In English, Slovenian and German with English subtitles. NOT RATED
