Everybody seems to like it and I can't understand why. I think it the story is flimsy, at best: the blind father doesn't get wise to the impostor impersonating his son; the money to be handed to just 2 soldiers who might decide to escape with it or easily being robbed; the ex of Giordana who pretends to shoot at him and kill him and the chief baddy falling for it though he's just two steps away. This kind of crap it is usually redeemed and accepted by fast rhythm. But here it is slow, without a single directorial invention. Only scenes I liked are the beating in the mud (that the reviewer at IMDB doesn't like) and the killing of blind Lulli duplicated in the end. I might add that this is a good chance to fully appreciate the face of Col. Mortimer's sister.
Oh, I like the main theme song.
100% agree with the above.
The highlight is Luli's death and the climax has good poetic justice.
I might add that the opening is excellent as well.
Everything else was a ho-hum affair.
Unlike the IMDB reviewer I liked the beating in the mud a lot. Could've gone on even longer and it wouldn't have bothered me.
