Top Customer Reviews
Pasqualino Frafuso feels the behaviour of his seven sisters reflects badly on his honor so he kills a neighbor who takes one's innocence. (willingly given)
Prison, a mental hospital, the army then WW2 prison camp take so much more than his reputation.
Hilarious at times, excruciating at others, this movie MUST be seen.
Wertmuller offsets these harrowing prison scenes with flashbacks to an earlier time when Giannini was a bumbling stooge for the Mafia and a skirt-chaser; these comic (though pathetic) scenes make the later ones even more devastating. He survives the war, however, though one wonders if at that price it was worth it. Giannani is excellent - all his acting is expressed in his face: he makes us feel his torment just by reading his expressions. This is very strong stuff, and the effects are lasting.

Probably one of the best movie of Italy's foray in WWII. It mixes humor in the horrors of Nazi concentration environment,with the strong drive to save alive.......Published 8 months ago by Beanster
Probably Lina Wertmuller's best film. In the 1970's, Giancarlo Giannini functioned as a Robert DeNiro to Wertmuller's
Martin Scorsese, and the results were terrific. Read more
