War seen through the eyes of Serra, a university student from Palermo who volunteers in 1942 to fight in Africa. He is assigned to the Pavia Division on the southern line in Egypt. Rommel and the Axis forces are bogged down; it's October, the British prepare an offensive. At first, boredom, heat, hunger, and thirst bedevil the Italians; then the Brits attack, and there's no luck or heroism in death. Finally, it's retreat in confusion. Serra, his sergeant Rizzo, and his lieutenant Fiori take a last walk toward home. It's said that each soldier gets three miracles; when Serra's are used up, what then?Written by

The motorcycle which delivers our volunteer Private Serra at the beginning and then rescues him at the end is a Moto Guzzi SuperAlce. That particular model wasn't released by Moto Guzzi until 1946. The accurate machine would have been the forerunner model Alce. See more »
Hey, we are in 2002, we have seen a lot of war movies like this.
Kubrick's "Paths of glory" in the fifties, and then all those movies about the war in Vietnam. Ok, it is not bad, but it's easy to make a movie like this after Kubrick, Coppola, and so on. The only new thing here is the soundtrack. I was expecting something more by Emilio Solfrizzi (Lt. Fiore), but Favino and Briguglia were ok. 6/10
