Mainly for those interested in Italian history
14 January 2002 | by psteierSee all my reviews

A partisan journeys to Genoa to get Garibaldi's help liberating Sicily from Bourbon mercenaries.

Made during Mussolini's rule to spur patriotism, it seems similar to the movies Hollywood made in the early 1940's to raise support for America European fight, with sympathetic peasants and cruel mercenaries.

Nicely done, but clearly not a 'cast of thousands' movie.
