Young Gian Maria Volontè
13 May 2018 | by TarsitiusSee all my reviews

A watchable black-and-white film, which impresses rather by some scenes with violence and portrayals of Sicilian landscape and villages and workman's life in a surface quarry than by the story of the chief character.

The political/social backgrund was harder to grasp.

I got also enchanted by the film score and music shows with the nice, refined Italian music of the 60's.

Most cineast will have learned to know brilliant Volonté in one of the Spaghetti Westerns, but here, he appears very young. For fans of him, so, too.
