Fine little Italian "war" gem here.
Well.....it's not that it's a great movie or anything like that, but it's well made and has some more "lyrical" passages along the way. Not a typical war-movie at all, dealing with "revolution"(= Corbari, the hero) vs. fascism in Italy during w.w.2 Two scenes stand out...especially the first one, which I hold as one of filmhistory's best staged execution-scenes ever!!! Damn fine editing and some passionate music to go with the "emotinal" happenings. Second scene is the finale where, again, people are being executed.This time they're hanged though. In the first one they were shot.Director Orsini has an outspoken flair for these matters it seems. Saw this on Danish videotape....letterboxed 1:1.90 approx.... English language...running 97.18 mins, pal time. Tina Aumont dosn't dress down I'm afraid....but instead we get full frontal male nudity for those into such ah...!!??
