A very rare masterpiece
24 November 2001 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

It's difficult to find this movie but it's the only one that talk about the fight of the new italian kingdom against the "briganti" (street criminals) at the end of 19° century.

Pasquale Squitieri used a little ancient town to realize a very difficult movie about a strange period of italian history.
