This low-budget Australian period piece examines the effects of WWII on the women and children left behind when the country sent troops into battle. Dorothy (Lisa Hensley) oversees the family farm while her husband fights; she's aided by two Italian prisoners of war, Alfredo (Steve Bastoni) and Joseph (Domenic Galati), as well as a Jewish mother and daughter seeking asylum from Nazi Germany. Her children take to the Italians immediately, viewing them as father figures while their real dad's away. Meanwhile, the young German woman becomes smitten with Joseph, with dire consequences. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

The critics say: A sleeper from Down Under, 15 Amore is "beautifully shot by John Brock...a superb looking, lyrical film, building atmosphere and character with the easy pace of the era it depicts - the 1940s," wrote Richard Kuipers on Urban Cinephile (Australia). "The war is at once far away from the rural setting yet very close to the heart of this isolated Australian homestead."
