| Good film, forgotten for many years
This film tell the story (invented but based on the real situation) of a group of partisan near Genova during the nazi occupation of Northern Italy that have to recover some weapons in a factory (with the help of the workers) and the dilemma of a group of italian "Alpini" soldier (mountain special troops) that was in doubt if is better to follow the order of the nazi ally/occupants or to join the partisan Resistance and fight for the freedom of Italy.

In this film appear a young Gina Lollobrigida, not at the maximum of her playing ability.

The film, that now have a great historical value, was first boycotted and then censored and retired from the distribution for many years by the italian cattolic government, because the partisans near Genova was quite all of Communist or Socialist ideology, so they think that the film can be used as a form of propaganda.

Using a good B/W the film show the city of the immediate post-war period, with some clip taken from documentaries of the time, and the mountain territory near Genova.
