João Pedro Zappa,
Ken Loach or Xavier Durringer could have made this feature that looks very like their cinema. THis is a sort of document, although being a fiction but highly inspired by actual events. Everybody knows that Corsica is a sort of French Sicily, an island where manhood is very important, as honor, land love, violence, brutality. We could say it is a didactic movie but I think the director says everything about the facts as they really occurred and the audiences can make their own opinion. It is well explained that the authentic independence fighters are like communist fighters before Stalin arrives, they don't believe in wealth or power, but only in justice, salvation and safety of their own father land. Their worst enemies are not the French government but first the Corsican mob, who ONLY believes in money, business, estate business, meaning billions and meaning the lost of Corsica identity. Independent fighters put the mob traffic and racket business in jeopardy, so the French government, of course, is too much glad to "help" the gangsters, the underworld, to get rid of the Corsican nationalists who can be a pain in the ass for the French politicians. And Corsica is also on the road of corruption, of nationwide bribery, as in Sicily, because of the near to be maffia, the Corsican underworld, andcertainly not the true authentic Nationalists who are some kind ofidealistic fighters for a lost in advance desperate war. Very good movie.
