Morricone and a method-acting Volonte can't save this mess, no matter the political and contemporary importance of the film
½ November 8, 2012
An important study of the factory worker and their deterioration into a machine-like life. The exploration of the character is in-depth and relatable in every circumstance. It is emotional and strips you of your very human values in order to understand the flaws of the industry life.

A powerful film with a Marxist message. One of the best politics film that I ever saw. Mr. Petri, a master in these kind of cinema, show to us a remarkable screenplay, direction, music by other master: Ennio Morricone and acting by the great Gian Maria Volante. The Working Class Goes to Heaven is a true manifesto that fight to the rights of the working men. Fresh.

Politically scintillating & still resonant.

Guardiamo più da vicino gli operai in fabbrica, il rapporto con datori di lavoro, sindacati, estremisti (vedi Fiat), e il lavoro sempre piu estenuante. Il tema è interessante, ma la vera "attrazione" è Gian Maria Volontè: tra i più grandi attori italiani di sempre.

Here's "Elio Petri" with his unique style in moving camera and guiding his favorite actor "Gian Maria Volonte". I had watched his Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto (1970) and la Decima vittima (1965), and enjoyed them both. Also here was an alive screenplay and performance, plus very dynamic editing. With the special Italian sense of humor, even when they're talking politics, the whole film was delicious.

There were many memorable scenes, particularly when Lulu was meeting Militina in the asylum. The last scene was genius.
