Storyline

Rome, 1825. Bishop Rivarola (Tognazzi) and colonel Nardoni (Salerno) are in charge to suppress liberal revolution. Shoemaker Cornacchia (Manfredi) got the information that the liberal Filippo Spada (Ekland) is a spy and is going to denounce his revolutionary companions. So Cornacchia decides to report Spada to two "Carbonari" (kind of Freemasons) to kill Spada. The two, Montanari (Hossein) and Targhini (Verley) fail to kill him and decide to escape from Rome. But they are arrested and sentenced to death. Cornacchia will spend his last chance to save them. Written by 1felco

Buonanotte, popolo
30 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Loosely based on a true historical event of the Italian "Risorgimento", the movie is set in Rome in 1825. Two "carbonari" revolutionaries, doctor Montanari (Hossein) and young Targhini (Verley) attempt to murder a traitor and are arrested. As we follow their ordeal, we also meet humble Cornacchia (Nino Manfredi), who is secretly the satirical poet Pasquino; Jew Giuditta (Claudia Cardinale), in love with Montanari; Cardinal Rivarola (Ugo Tognazzi), one of the revolutionaries' main enemies; a friar (Alberto Sordi) given the task to assist the prisoners.

Nell'anno del Signore (In the year of the Lord) treads on thin ice, since it portrays a real, dramatic fact with an often facetious tone; however, the mix of comedy and drama works and give the movie a bittersweet tone.

Acting is solid, with a special mention for the always brilliant Manfredi, who shines as shrewd Cornacchia. Also excellent is Tognazzi as Rivarola: he resists the temptation to make him a sneering villain and portrays him as clever, cold and a little dreary. Sordi has a scene-stealing turn as the friar.

The main theme of the soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful and memorable.

8/10
