Storyline

Based on real events, Il Duce Canadese is a dramatic mini-series that follows the experiences of the fictional Alvaro family as they struggle to survive these trying times. It is the story of how Angelo, Mario and Momo came to be considered a threat to national security, were arrested by the RCMP and held prisoner in the camp. It follows Sara and Turi, who strain to keep the bakery afloat in a community impoverished by the arrest of its men and the effects of anti-Italian prejudice. It traces the predatory actions of Mazzotta as he takes advantage of the situation to both save his own skin and pursue Sara. Il Duce Canadese shows a family and community trying to come to terms with events over which it had no control, and throws light on a little-known chapter in history, which has new relevance for the world today.

Il Duce Canadese - RECOMMENDED
18 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this mini series on the CBC with great interest. As a second generation Italian I was very surprised at the severity of the attack on Italians in Quebec and Canada during the second world war. This series should be required viewing for all Italo Canadians as it concisely depicts the prejudiced experienced by our ancestors during a time when we did not expect it.

In my opinion this movie was beautifully acted and the costuming supreme. The scenery and cinematography was also commendable. For me, this movie is a must see and a must keep for every collector of Italian-Canadian History.
