Some Mussolini in this film
20 January 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

One of the "actress" in the film is Alessandra Mussolini........................................................, granddaughter of Mussolini and Sophia Loren's nephew (Yes people, S Loren belongs to that family!)........................................................... This is an old film about Holocaust. Alessandra Mussolini plays a nun who saves Jews..................................... Now she leads a little Italian party (very little!!, lucky us) who recalls nationalistic ideas, ..........................................similar to her grandfather's ideas. I don't add anything else............................. Make your opinions folks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
