19 December 2007 | Mozjoukine
Italian realism mixed with WW2 historical.
Companion to Lizzani's "Hunchback of Rome", lacking that films kinkiness and vigour.

The opening has leather suits take the WW2 Roman Jewish leader to hear that the German commander demands fifty kilos of gold or two hundred heads of families as hostages. Sub plot offers Ferrero about to marry Catholic Sorel (here a soppy juvenile ) though she was Jewish militant Blain's dream girl.

Blain's goes off to join the partisans and newly baptised Ferrero sees the sinister outcome.

Not enough telling moments in the could have been more imposing development, along with ordinary sixties wide screen production values.
