| Beautifulst film of the braver brace d' Italy.
In answer to bethlambert117, it is American, even if says to live in Italy, and perhaps for this she has not understood well the history and she converses of the film. With how much it writes offends the director, because it is thus stupid not to know to choose a good script. From the hardly seen interviews in the extras of the DVD, of the film, many times over the director says l' exact contrary, speaking own about the script, than was very constructed and dell' engagement that have had to put in order to respect some suspense, pathos and social denunciation. The director speaks about the double spirit of the script uniform between action and drama, for being involved and stimulating he a lot. Also l' author of the script, declares that l' idea is born from she, that it has made long searches, and with great courage it has spoken directly with the soldiers hit from the tumor in mission, than they have told their history to them. They are stupid?, and absurdities all also they. I converse I am exactly those used in the military language, the speeches of Moresco Colonel, I have found them beautiful and deep, l' author has found the language of the Colonel, being confronted with a true one. (stupid or ridicule also he?) perhaps guilty can itself be rendered the script for an excess of realism, inserted all' inside of a fantasy history, with real facts. Melodramma ago the part of our history and culture, is born from the comedy dell' art, and appeals to us. The tragic-comic term is born from this. An example for all: " The Great War" directed Mario Monicelli. Today they would say that it is ridicule with converses absurd and melò with drama also that one? The funny struck ones in the film, left to the girls and the patient dell' hospital, makes smiles, because born for this. They are ironic and thin and never directly comic, shadings difficult to perhaps perceive, for she. Fragasso is a great director and not only d' action or of kind, he knows to give emotions and feeling also in the center of a war, flood of shots and race blots with them of it, and makes it, without to watch to the past, but thinking next to the future. The Italian cinema cannot be single comedy, must return to having the great industry, when the cinema of Italian kind was all the cinema. And films were produced: adventure, fantasy, westerns, police, thriller, espionage, action and horror. Today not it is null than all this. Instead offending and despising who it has the courage to carry ahead the kind cinema, being succeeded to make it well and with little money, going against all and all those producers that only think to make money with film trade them (the comedies), of sure proceeds, always taking the same actors, those more paid that they make box office. I would support two authors like they, than from years they carry various, beautiful films ahead and never boring's, always changing the cast, making to new experience and discovering new young people you turn. I follow them from the times of film: "Teste Rasate", "Palermo Milano Solo Andata", " La Banda" "Concorso Di Colpa", "Blindati" Operazione Odissea", "Coppia Omicida" "Milano - Palermo: il ritorno", and many many,others till before the last film " Le ultime 56 ore". All these films,have always signed them entirety, creed that is a wonderful brace that works with from nearly 30 years, and with great result.But a true brace of job and life. I hope that they continue to still realize, many, and many, and many other beautiful st films. You are great! ... W the Fragassi.
