During the WWII Italians and English occupy alternatively a village between the Albanian and Grecian borders. It happens so often that, not only they use the same Hotel (the Iris) as headquarters, but also they find the time to build up a kind of friendship relation. In fact the two colonels, the Italian Col. Di Maggio and the English Henderson save each other their life. But one day German army orders to Di Maggio a massive bombing in order to destroy completely the village, killing all its occupants and inhabitants, including the girls for which the Italians fallen in love. Di Maggio refuses and is sentenced to death. It is just the night before the famous September the 8th 1943. Written by
splendid comedy, seductive at whole, it is more than a war movie. because it represents a wise example of measure about a delicate subject. the secret is the remarkable cast and use, in smart manner of classic clichés. and the real virtue is exactly the status of first step on a way to present the war in a fresh manner. key - great dialog between Walter Pidgeon and Toto.than - the game of stereotypes.and not the last, slices of naivety, used with admirable art. a comedy about a tragic event with powerful Italian flavor, with a precise script and the testimony for many films after it - Mediterraneo is the obvious example.
