Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Set in the time of Garibaldi's revolutionary efforts to free and unify Italy (1860s), this Italian film brings to the screen the story of a Sicilian participant in the town of Bronte. The story pits two kinds of revolutionaries against one another: idealists, and land-grabbers. When the townspeople execute their local rulers, Garibaldi sends a general to restore order. Ironically, the ones arrested and punished are the moderates who were against the slayings. This film was shot on location in Yugoslavia rather than Sicily.
