Additional Information and Mood of our Story
 for Publicists, Artists and Cinematographers

 

Our screenplay is a family novel in war drama genre.
It's an adaptation of Arrivederci Leopolis by George Perantoni and Sam Ivey (Amazon 2011).

Its style is upbeat as much as possible, by not indulging too much in the horrors of the war, while still alluding to the atrocities happening.

It's not a film to shock or terrify. Instead, it's a story presenting uncommon historical facts, even unveiling some, and staged to provide history and entertainment
at the same time.

Not a re-enactment, but a captivating novel loaded with fascinating originality. 

Our exceptional screenplay can reach the common interests of diverse audiences in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia.

The script’s extraordinary storyline ought to attract large international audiences  --  in view of the screenplay's
seven thought-provoking controversial subjects.



SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING CONTROVERSIES:

(A true story in real chronology)

1) MUSSOLINI IN POLAND.
2) WAR ON THE SONS OF ITALY.
3) MASSACRED BY COMRADES.
4) THE IMPACT OF MONTE CASSINO.
5) THE DESTRUCTION OF VOLARGNE.
6) THE WORLD'S LEADERS BETRAY POLAND.
7) JOSEPH STALIN STEALS THE WAR'S TROPHY.

SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING HISTORICAL EVENTS.

Seven remarkable controversies presented in their
true historical chronology. Not 7 separate narratives,
but seven sensational events embracing our story's
main theme* - From Poland's summer of 1939,
to liberated northern Italy in 1945-1946.

*Our story's main theme contains lighter entertaining portions 
in between the seven historical events,
joining them into a single family novel
loaded of engaging originality.

Short preview of our Screenplay "The War of Lions":  

Vittorio Perantoni is a Polish born Italian national with dual citizenship living in Lwów, Poland. In the 1930s Vittorio (Victor) and his older brother Luigi work with their father, Carlo Perantoni, at operating the family’s successful winery-pasta tavern, and managing their import business of wine sales and distributing wine from Italy.

But the Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland change all of that.  When the Italian Consulate orders Italian nationals to evacuate Poland, the Perantoni family is suddenly forced to leave their considerable wealth behind. Victor’s girlfriends will also be left behind as
he flees to Switzerland to avoid Italy's Fascist draft.

Left too are his Polish friends André, Franki, and 'Padre.' All these persons will be scattered as they face the fears, hardships, and physical abuses of World War Two.

The war drags on and Europe burns. His Polish friends André and Franki are arrested and routed to Siberia, but then commandeered into the new Allied Army of General Wladyslaw Anders; his girlfriend Dani faces deportation to a Nazi death camp; and Vittorio too is nearly captured and imprisoned.

From both sides of enemy lines all are wondering: will life ever be the same again?

“The War of Lions” will show you life during World War II through the eyes of the Perantoni family.  You will see it as you have never seen it before, and you will be gratified by numerous incidents where Nazi Wehrmacht leaders and Soviet officials 
had been outwitted by guile and fearlessness.

The originality of our story is fantastic.  It gives a fresh view on World War II from a perspective that hasn’t been seen before.  It focuses on the people, not the armies,
thus offering a very unique and positive perspective with which to view this era.  

See the Sudden and Utter Destruction of our Native Town Volargne

With great misfortune, you will see the Perantoni family's native hometown in Italy, Volargne di Dolcé, literally disappear in one instant!  Completely blown to dust and rubble from an enormous explosion caused by the murderous negligence of Albert Speer's Nazi Engineers, and then simply reported as a military accident. 

You will feel the Heartbreaking Betrayal of WWII's Bravest Soldiers 

THE ARMED FORCES OF POLAND - Betrayed at Yalta by the 'Big3' Leaders of the Allied Supreme Command in the final days of the war - An entire army of triumphant Polish warriors in their height of victory ... turn sad, confused, and angry!

 
HISTORICAL NOTE: At the Yalta conference, Churchill and Roosevelt hand Poland over to Joseph Stalin! In protest of such a heartless betrayal thirty Polish officers and men commit suicide in north-central Italy.  They had been honorable Polish war veterans who had defeated Nazi-Fascism, liberated Italy and stood, for a while, as the true glorious winners of WWII.
 
WE DEDICATE "THE WAR OF LIONS" TO THESE BRAVE LIBERATORS OF ITALY AND TRUE WINNERS OF WWII.
 
From the start, the 1939 Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland had made WWII 'THEIR WAR.They had fought it victoriously for the Polish nation, also for the world, and they had won it in 1945 – But, their reward was BETRAYAL – 
 
Why?  Because the 'other enemy' - JOSEPH STALIN - who had conspired with Adolf Hitler in the 1939 joint invasions of Poland - had become a main actor in Europe's war - Stalin asserted in 1945 his claim to eastern Poland's borderlands as 'lawfully gained' by his 1939 invasion (!?) and he took also the western part which had been lost by his former partner in evil.
 
Consequently, the war's most valiant fighters, who defeated Nazi-Fascism and liberated Italy, had been robbed of their rightfully earned  'Victorious Homecoming' to a FREE Poland, for which they had fought long and hard, and for which a quarter-million of them had been sacrificed.

THE BETRAYAL had transformed the noble and victorious Polish Armed Forces into a huge crowd of homeless exiles scattered all over Europe.
 – Poland's honorable war veterans could never return to their homeland –
 
They would never again see their spouses ...
... Neither their families nor their homes!

Who are "Hitler's Nazi Todt Engineers"?
 
Adolf Hitler considered them to be his personal organization of great (super-Aryan) engineers.  After having conquered the world, "his" plans (or fantasies) were to use Todt's Nazi Engineers to rebuild great cities – Berlin, Vienna, Rome, etc. – and he (Hitler) would be the Great Architect and Creator over all "his" works.  Accordingly, "his" Nazi Todt Engineers would continue to build for "him" even after his death – after which "his Nazi Engineers" would keep "his visions" updated and they would continue to implement "his plans" in order for "his successors" to finish rebuilding the rest of the planet for "him"
according to "his" wishes!  (Repetitions intended)
 
Read about how Adolf Hitler had furtively managed to take full control of Fritz Todt's engineers in order to achieve his military world-conquest.

Read about why Hitler put the organization into the hands of his very good friend, the ARCHITECT, ALBERT SPEER, with dreams of making it the Führer's construction service dedicated to Great Nazi Rebuilding Works.

Read about how ALBERT SPEER would prepare the "Todt Organization" for Hitler's post-war enthronement as the GREAT ARCHITECT CREATOR for their shared delusion of Aryan World Domination.
