Audience Reviews for The Flight of the Innocent (La corsa dell'innocente)
The boy in this movie was really good. Unfortunately, evil overacting adults had to often come on the scene. If it weren't for their overly dramatic presence, this would have been a fine movie.
No English or American cast here. The very beginning seems all too Italian, even by today's standards, but give it about 10 minutes and it still seems too, too Italian. Plot Synopsis by Hal Erickson: "Originally titled La Corsa Dell'Innocente, this Italian drama focuses on that country's ongoing wave of kidnappings. The early scenes focus on a large, outwardly normal Italian family who happen to make their living by abducting wealthy children and holding them for ransom. When the family is wiped out by a rival gang, only 10-year-old Vito (Manuel Coalo) survives. Any other child would go to the police at this point, but Vito has been raised never to trust the police -- or anyone else, for that matter." Pure gunshot violence in the beginning. Sam Peckinpah would be glad to see this. It seems the modern era Italians like gore, bloodshed and slow motion violence as much as anybody. [Taken from the films of Sergio Leone there is no doubt.] If violence is your game, check this out, at least in the beginning. "The boy Vito is a portrait of beauty and wide-eyed innocence spawned from a violent family of kidnapers and murderers in the South of Italy. When his entire family is murdered by a rival clan of kidnapers, Vito must flee for his own life and in the end attempts to make atonement for some of his family's sins." ....Written by Jeff Hole "If you are looking for a movie that has a great story, well done acting, fantastic direction and a score that will give you goosebumps when you hear it, look no further Flight of the Innocent is a Masterpiece of pure action and excitement. I have just finished viewing this movie for the fifth time and I am still not bored with it." .....by Robert Grima (firstname.lastname@example.org) Director: Carlo Carlei Writers: Carlo Carlei (screenplay), Carlo Carlei (story) Stars: Manuel Colao, Federico Pacifici Salvatore Borghese Gross revenues! $33,851 MPAA rating for sequences of graphic violence and for some language. running time: 105 min
