Bitter Rice

The forgotten Rice fields of Sallasco, where the movie "Bitter Rice ", was made in 1940, still stands

In 1949 the movie bitter Rice was made and won an Oscar in 1950. The town Sallasco is still standing. For the most part. The people that recall the film where too young to be in it. However they still work or, support themselves in the village of Sallasco located in Northern Italy some sixty four years later.
