This is, in many ways, Renato De Maria's Italian version of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. It is a historically based piece of film fiction where the premise involves the use of Mussolini and the Italian Fascists as the basis for the story. A group of men discover a plan by Mussolini to flee Italy with his his country's riches as the war is coming to a close. The plot is to steal the gold and escape pic h and free men. The movie is well scripted, shot, and directed. The cinematography and costumes are very good. The acting is good. Matilda de Angelis, the star of HBO's The Undoing, is very good in this. The film is good and I love that so many war films focus on Germany and Hitler, but this one uses Mussolini and the Italians as a focal point. While it is good, it is not as compelling, well filmed, or well scripted as a Tarantino film. That is okay. Many films do not.
