When we were children,we swore we'd always remember:our school teacher was killed during WW2 by the Nazis,because of an informer.When we grew up,we would kill this b......
Now they are grown-ups ,and only one of them seems to want to see it through.The others' objections are numerous: "he" was only 17 when "he "did it;we should kill the German soldiers as well;we were children when we swore ,we did not know what we were doing.
The director didn't either:the story takes about 15 minutes to start;the movie is handicapped by frequent use of Angelo Branduardi's music the connection of which with the action is vague ,I fear.Add a folk dance which is mostly filler .Plus pointless flashbacks.
Bearing more than a distant resemblance with Julien Duvivier's "Marie -Octobre" ,which I recommend .
