Sebastiano Procolo ha intenzione di abbattere il bosco per fini speculativi e cerca di ottenere la parte di proprietà di Benvenuto, il nipote di cui è tutore; la sua smania arriva fino al tentare l'omicidio con la complicità del vento Matteo, ma contro la volontà degli animali del bosco che aiutano a più riprese il bambino. Nel finale Sebastiano riacquista l'affetto del nipote e salva la situazione ormai precipitata nei confronti dei geni del bosco sacrificando se stesso. Benvenuto, che sta crescendo, accompagna il suo amico, il vento Matteo, alla cima del monte dove anche lui, come Procolo, morirà svanendo nell'aria.

In the industrial North, Giovanni is a skilled factory worker offered a promotion if he'll go to Sicily for 18 months to assist in a new department. His impending absence strains his already nearly wordless relationship with Liliana, his fiancée. They meet regularly at a dance hall and sometimes go riding on his motorcycle. We watch him arrive in Sicily, walk the town, live in a hotel, find lodgings, work, and participate in local events. It's a solitary, melancholy life. In his mind's eye he thinks about Liliana. He hasn't been entirely faithful. There's pain and detachment in her eyes. Across this distance, can anything bring about a breakthrough? Do they have a future?

Directed by veteran helmer Ermanno Olmi, this Chinese folktale revolves around a young man (Davide Dragonetti) who mistakenly enters a brothel while trying to find his way through urban China circa the 1930s. Narrated by Bud Spencer, the young man succumbs to temptation, and the dialogue-free scene is performed through dance. Meanwhile, pirate junks begin firing at one another from a shoreside village. The leader, Admiral Ching (Makoto Kobayashi), is backed by a powerful group of profiteers, thus prompting the emperor to offer him a high ranking position if he stops firing. Unwilling to lose their income, Ching's backers murder the pirate, which sets off a strange sequence of events that will resound throughout the community for years to come.

A painterly and sensual immersion in late nineteenth-century Italian farm life, Ermanno Olmi’s The Tree of Wooden Clogs lovingly focuses on four families working for one landowner on an isolated estate in the province of Bergamo. Filming on an abandoned farm for four months, Olmi adapted neorealist techniques to tell his story, enlisting local people to live as their own ancestors had, speaking in their native dialect on locations with which they were intimately familiar - Tra l'autunno 1897 e l'estate 1898, quattro famiglie vivono in una cascina della Bassa Bergamasca. Tra i componenti di questa comunità esiste un profondo legame spirituale e culturale che li porta a vivere insieme cose belle e cose tragiche, avvenimenti ordinari e avvenimenti straordinari.

"L'albero degli zoccoli" è la storia di una cascina lombarda sul chiudersi dell’800, delle sue consuetudini e dei suoi costumi. Una cultura rurale nobile e compatta, segnata nel flusso delle stagioni da obiettivi puri ed essenziali, da sposalizi e da nascite, furberie e sacrifici, necessità prioritarie ed inavvertibili vizi, da Dio e dalla terra.
