This film is a historical document of the living conditions of the workers from southern Italy that emigrated to the north of the country to work in the industries in Milan. The film gives a good idea of the north-south mentality clash in Italy. The workers from the north and the south may have the same political ideas, but when they go home to their families they are worlds apart. They can't undersatand each other,even when in love like the Lombard Nullo and the Sicilian Carmela, but they are united by death caused by the ruthless disregard for safety measures of the industry managers and of those (the doctor) that should look after the lives of the workers and not simply appease the interests of the owners. On a lighter note there are many scenes with interesting views on the period italian public and private transport. This is one of the films that demonstrate that Italy is not just "mafia, pizza and mandolin"!
