Product Description

In Northern Italy, WWI has turned into a bloody stalemate. Bogged down in their trenches on a barren highland, the men of an Italian infantry division have been given one objective: retake a commanding height from the enemy. Unfortunately, the tactical ingenuity of General Leone, the unpopular division commander, consists of supplementing frontal attacks against machine-guns with medieval fighting schemes. His dispirited troops must be prodded with ever harsher measures into storming the Austrian positions. As casualties mount, indignation spreads amongst the rank and file. Disturbed by the decisions of his superiors, Lieutenant Sassu is progressively led to question the purpose of the war and to reconsider where his real duties lie.

HASH(0x9cf9f63c) out of 5 stars A WWI essential Dec 27 2013
By Jane Stivarius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After being stunned by this film when it was presented on French TV, I have long waited for it to be available in a Region 1 DVD. Agreeing with Mr. Smith's previous comments, I would only add that this film and "La Grande Guerra" of Vittorio Gassman and Alberto Sordi besides being spectacular films are essential because of their look at the Italian experience in WWI. Both owe much to Emilio Lussu's book "Un anno sull'altipiano" which, at last, will be published in 2014 in its English translation entitled "A Soldier on the Southern Front: The Classic Italian Memoir of World War I"
HASH(0x9f260bc4) out of 5 stars One of Francesco's Rosi's Best Films Dec 3 2015
By Wayman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A wonderful work of art from Francesco Rosi. The film seems to receive much less attention than similarly themed films, like Kubrick's Paths of Glory. Nevertheless, the realism of war represented by the film is enduring, and as Rosi indicated, this is one of the films he felt very satisfied with on screen. The color of war may never have been expressed so plainly on film.
