One man lead resistance against the imperialist designs of the Italian dictator.
7.1 is a ridiculous rating. This movies deserves much higher and I can assure those who have not seen it that they will agree with me once they have seen it.
Almost all aspects of movie making are amazingly rendered. It will easily compare with any movie about war and politics. The savagery, otherwise recorded only in books, is depicted marvelously. I want to praise a couple of actors but it would not be correct to leave anyone out so I am just saying that they were all tailor made for their roles. There is some real reel footage in the movie and that drives home the points raised in this movie.
On a tangent it is interesting that the so called civilized countries continuously plumbed new depths of uncivilized actions only for land and riches . It is an amazing display of imperialistic debauchery.
