Good movie about Italian resistance in 1943-1944
Good Italian movie in black and white, telling a true history of Italian resistance against German and Fascist. The title means "A lions day" ad is derived from a phrase written on a wall during First World War, near the resistance line of river Piave in 1917: "is better to live a day as lion than a thousand years as a sheep". The picture contains many episodes that those who lived these terrible years remember well: mopping up of young peoples, bullying of Germans and fascists, the life of partisans in the worst conditions. The actors do their best, moving the moment when one of the partisan is compelled to shot one of his university companions, in order to avoid the capture.
