a manifesto
29 August 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

about freedom, knowledge, fight against prejudices. maybe, about the Church. Giordano Bruno becomes the symbol of the fight for ideas and ideals. for transform the philosophy as tool for everybody. for define the knowledge as supreme form of liberty. and for save an ideal, against the obstacles. a film who, for music and for the atmosphere, for the performance of Gian Maria Volonte and for the force of the last scenes, remains a must see. as political film, off course but, maybe more important, for the wise way to present and sustain ideals and force of faith. because, in fact, it is just a faith story. religious. but not only. the motif - the generous manner for give a touching, coherent and useful warning with universal impact.
