One man's fight against organized crime proves to have devastating consequences for himself and his loved ones in this drama from Italy. As a young man, Placido Rizzotto (Marcello Mazzarella) saw his father imprisoned by police for a crime he didn't commit, and as a teenager he had to contend with the brutal excesses of Mussolini's soldiers while fighting in World War II. These events have left Placido with little taste for petty tyranny and with a desire to promote social justice. Upon his return home from the war, Placido becomes increasingly aware that organized crime has taken hold of his village, and he becomes angry and frustrated as he sees Mafia leaders controlling local politics and taking whatever land or property they want. Placido helps to form a trade union as a challenge to the Mafia's authority, and attempts to organize the villagers into a collective to grow crops in the fields taken by gangsters from the people.

(nl) wrote: It's pretty dated, but there are many interesting scenes and great characters. The effects aren't too bad for an early 80's TV mini-series and the story is pretty great. The first part is pretty great and an excellent science fiction story, but the rest of it sort of falls slowly. Still very entertaining.
(kr) wrote: A poor quality adaptation of a male fantasy that actually demoralizes women more than you'd think. It has it's moments, and it's a film that did need to be made to influence the future of the film industry with films like Jackie Brown, but it's still crap. The poor quality of the film shows in it's most important scenes, and it's enough to make the whole film experience boring. Still, I have to give credit to Pam Grier's peformance and the musical score
