The fall of Italy

War film

Lordan Zafranovic

Short description:
The fall of Italy moves armies, causes panic, clashes, cruelty, revenge. In an island town, this leaves deep traces. Partisan squad commander, an ascetic revolutionary type, dedicated to fight, with consistent decisions and attitudes, gets caught in the trap of love with the girl whose father is a landowner and a traitor. From that moment, he will identify love with fredom and, as a fighter and revolutionary, will become weaker. His younger brother, who has come of age during the revolution, will judge the irresponsible behavior of his older brother. This story, based on historical facts, is followed by whole mosaic of different characters and destinies.
