Heart and Soul is a film adaptation of Edmondo de Amici's novel, Cuore. Initially published in 1886 and rising to immediate success, the book and film follow Enrico Bottini, a 10-year old primary school student in Turin with an upper class background who is surrounded by classmates of working class origins. The book is set in 1881-1882 and reflects on the Italian unification in 1870, evoking several patriotic themes and Italian nationalism.
