Hunchbacked Robin Hood
18 May 2017 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

I don't understand why this tremendous picture has not been commented yet. This is really a very interesting story which I don't know if it is inspired by actual events or not. Why not? Gerard Blain gives in this film an awesome performance. the plot has already been given above, so it's useless I repeat it. But the main character is nearly unbelievable, as a sort of Robin Hood put in Italy during and just after WW2. Good action scenes and moving sequences too. This film should deserve to be more known and released. There are so many more hidden gems every where. Shame on the distributors.
