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

The people of a city and his fight against the tyranny
10 October 1999 | by (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This good film tell a historical fact: the resistance of the people common of Naples against the Nazi, that they occupied the city in 1943, after the fall of Mussolini. Using only light weapons left by the Italian soldiers, they look for hopelessly to maintain the freedom, once the American soldiers are approximating if. For four days, the heroic resistance of popular gets to maintain the military situation in an impasse... Film of beautiful and touching images, as the father taking the dead combatant son in the arms to be veiled home; the people playing domestic objects of the windows on the Germans or the boys of the reformatory, rebelling and fleeing for they unite to the resistance. Unforgettable!!
