The real story of the partisan Silvio Corbari. He starts his career killing publicly one of his friends that was a fascist. Than, he set up a band of partisans in north Italy, completely independent from the Italian organized resistance (CLN). Ines, leave his husband to join the band and became Silvio's lover. Silvio Corbari succeeded also to set up a free-zone, his personal republic, independent from the Nazi occupied Italy, in a little village called Tregnano. But the opponent Nazi-Fascist army is too much for any kind of resistance, especially if not included in the organized CNL. All his partisan friends are captured and sentenced to death, Ines, close to be captured, suicides. Corbari, even if survives to a first hanging, can't escape to a second one. After WWII he deserved a gold medal to the memory from the Italian Republic. Written by
Well.....it's not that it's a great movie or anything like that, but it's well made and has some more "lyrical" passages along the way. Not a typical war-movie at all, dealing with "revolution"(= Corbari, the hero) vs. fascism in Italy during w.w.2 Two scenes stand out...especially the first one, which I hold as one of filmhistory's best staged execution-scenes ever!!! Damn fine editing and some passionate music to go with the "emotinal" happenings. Second scene is the finale where, again, people are being executed.This time they're hanged though. In the first one they were shot.Director Orsini has an outspoken flair for these matters it seems. Saw this on Danish videotape....letterboxed 1:1.90 approx.... English language...running 97.18 mins, pal time. Tina Aumont dosn't dress down I'm afraid....but instead we get full frontal male nudity for those into such ah...!!??
