One of the most important and winning Italian Short Movies of 2009.
“My Last Day of War” is a 19 minute short film set in World War II and recounts the story of the first and only meeting between an Italian farmer from the province of Romagna (Andrea Vasumi) and two rival military forces, German and American. From this encounter, the adventure then unfolds centered around the attempt on the part of young “Balduccio” to create peace between the adversaries whilst trying to save his own life in the process. The courage and sincerity of the youth bring about ironic and paradoxical situations that analyze the tragic world of war from an innovative and profound point of view.
