Storyline

The film shows the history of the Neapolitan popular revolt against the invading Germans, during the second world war. During the four days in Naples the revolt turns over in just few hours. Neapolitans slinged on rifles and guns, and they armed themselves with stones, house-objects, gasoline-bottles and everything, anonymous and silent. Gennarino Capuozzo, a ten year old child killed on a barricade while he was fighting against the invasors, is remembered by people as a hero. Written by Adalberto Fornario

User Reviews

 
Superb direction, editing, cinematography highlight engrossing drama.

This is an engrossing 124 minute film that seems to fly by. It never stops. The documentary-like approach to the tale of the Neopolitan rebellion against the occupying Nazi forces in the last days of WW II is embellished with many emotionally-laden vignettes that bring home the hellish effects of war on every day life. Nanni Loy's direction is extraordinary, from the small family scenes to the many many crowd scenes -it must have been a gargantuan task, expertly handled. The cinematography is superb and the editing keeps us both interested and holding on to the sides of our seats in this non-stop roller coaster ride. See it.
