Martone worked wonders with a limited budget at re-creating a visually beautiful epic of early 19th century Italy, recounting its decades long war for unification as a nation-state. Servillo and Lo Cascio put in their much more than reliable usual performances, and Inaudi gets the plum role of portraying the Countess Belgioioso, one of the most fascinating and now almost unknown women of the last century. The film reveals that southern Italy was in some ways better off prior to the country's unification, and that the populist spirit of Garibaldi was indeed betrayed by the privileged who took the reigns. A heartbreaking film for those who understood what the unification of Italy promised--not only a democratic state, but a fair state--and failed to achieve. Epic length, so it was butchered for the short attention spans of some of its audience at its first US showing in LA in November 2011. Still worth it, if only for showing the Italian genius at creating the world of Visconti even without him.
Gruelling 3 1/2hr recreation of the Risorgimento as told through four young revolutionaries. The whole cast is there - Orsini, Mazzini, Cavour, Garibaldi..Packs a lot in, but don't go see it if you know nothing about Italian Unification. Beautifully filmed and great soundtrack though.
mattone di 3 ore per capire che da 150 anni Ã¨ sempre la stessa storia: i politici fanno i loro interessi, gli altri lottano contro i mulini a vento.
