A story of love and political commitment in pre-unitarian Italy.
19 February 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The film is of particular interest for two reasons: firstly, it is a film about the Italian Risorgimento, and yet a fairly a-typical one among those made during Fascism; secondly, it is a fairly intriguing early film by soon to be Neorealist master Vittorio de Sica, the author of such masterpieces as Shoeshine and Rome Open City.
