I understand that this film won Venice Grand Prize for 1947. Jury must have been picked from communists as this film is a worst communist propaganda one can imagine. The story of the strike in Czech mine, poor acting, story that must have been dug out from communist party instructions "how to promulgate communism". If one critises Venice film festival during Fascist years, this award stands in the line of those too.
