Very entertaining melodrama.
20 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Adapted from an obscure Dumas père novel,"I Fratelli Corsi" is a very good melodrama ,which encompasses everything storybook means :two twin boys estranged from each other from the cradle,blood and passion,duels,abductions,treasons,far-fetched but action-packed screenplay,lots of characters ,a classy villain (Gerard Barray ,later Duvernois/Senor TV in Amenabar's classic "abre los hoyos" remade as "Vanilla sky")..There are even bits of supernatural,which is rather unusual in swashbuckler melodrama :déjà vu feelings,telepathy show up now and then along the movie ,always with skill and taste.Filmed on location in Corse ,where this somber story of vendetta takes place,it's worth a watch,just because they do not do movies like this one today...and when they try,they fail.
