I have just seen this film on TV with my husband. We liked it very much. It depicts the rise of fascism in Italy and ultimately the rise of intolerance in any country especially in historical periods of crisis. I find this film frighteningly up to date. The scene where the girl kills the young man on the stage instead of the person who is to be blamed and the audience applauding joyfully for the murder of an innocent person without even knowing what they are applauding for is very powerful. The actors and actresses are superb in their roles as well as the direction of the film. I also liked the way the scenes drop from the one to the other without finishing what they were meant to show but just giving us hints about it and making us think which, I believe, is the target of a good film maker. It is really worth seeing it!
