I watched with pleasant interest and participation this work unique film by Stefano Mignucci and chagrin after reading some reviews on the web and comments from some users, the feature is unfortunately underestimated. I admit that the film is not without some flaws, deficiencies, or smearing, but I found "Bandits" a good movie, where it is mixed wisely, "drama", "noir" "Crime" and with a hearty well integrated political framework and apt in the context. The film presents some veins (whether voluntary or involuntary) "comedy", for example about the late and great actor Renato Mori but also the rest of the cast is not far behind. Well ... this lightens choice and makes smoother the film. The film has the dark shades, for both the represented context, both for the environments and is at the technical level where they are used cinematographic equipment perhaps a little contained but effective, higher making the atmosphere of degradation, corruption and discomfort. I do not know how to explain it but it is as if the film was moving in a kind of parallel reality, in fact, it seemed that "Bandits" had a something of surrealism. It must be said that this work before Mignucci many elements are very present even today and chaotic and dark times we are experiencing. The overall performances of the actors stood in medium-high and Ben Gazzara is undoubtedly the best and do not say this for the simple fact that it is the protagonist. Although not many shootings are beautiful to see and the blood effects really pretty good.
What else to say? I would promote this film, has certainly not changed the history of cinema, but I found it very interesting and current, not bored and and the kidnapping is managed in my view in an original and atypical, with a final perhaps a little too hasty but effective and functional.
