Rewarding for those who can find it.
27 April 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

What a tremendous piece of work about actual history facts. The end of Mussolini and his try to escape from his fate with Clara Pettracci, as it as rarely, even never, shown except in TV movies, such as those mini series starring George C Scott or Bob Hoskins. Here, it is of course shorter, but the characters are very well described, in such a way that you nearly may feel some empathy for the lead character. So shame that is has not been best known through DVD release.

I highly recommend it, if you can get it.

Directed by the prolific TV film maker Buzz Kulik who also gave us great large screen films.
