Storyline

July 2001. 200,000 protesters, consisting mainly of anti-globalization activists and anarchists of the Black Bloc) try to prevent the G8 summit from taking place in Genoa. The authorities, determined not to let them achieve their aim, give a free hand to the anti-riot police in the matter of repression. The Police superintendent decides a nighttime raid upon the Diaz school, used as a sleeping quarter and a center for those providing media, medical, and legal support work. The film tells about the ordeal put through by all those who slept or worked there, courtesy of the barbarous Police forces, complete with furious baton attacks and shameless humiliation following arrests.

Cleaning up
12 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

The movie says: Don't clean up the mess, as in let the world see what happened. As you can tell by that, the movie is based on true events. Very harrowing and very powerful. The performances are pitch perfect. Small events enroll and you can see that something big will happen. The movie emphasizes that one scene is very important (one event if you wanna call it that) and it gets repeated. Now don't judge the movie on the bad cgi in that scene, if you can.

And as the other reviewer has said, it might have its flaws, but its message is very clear and it should have played at the big screen at the Berlin International Film Festival. The other reviewer also stated there's another movie called Summit, which I know will seek, which seems to be reveal even more of what happened, but more in a documentary style. This one reminded me a bit of the American movie "Battle in Seattle" ...
