Tepid drama based on terrorism in Italy
12 December 2002 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This is a rather two dimensional drama about some Americans who find themselves embroiled in the terrorist activities of the Red Brigade in Italy. The Americans are passionate idealists who have a lot of sex and the terrorists are the usual wooden movie sociopaths. The plot is interesting enough to hold your attention and the acting is convincing. The cinematography is very nice and holds it together enough to make it all worth while. There are very many nice shots of the streets and countryside of Italy.
