After the fall of Napoleon, the Restoration begins. Fulvio (Marcello Mastroianni, La dolce vita), an aristocrat who has dedicated his life to the revolution has become disillusioned and his cowardice keeps him from joining his comrades. As he struggles to manage his evasion and lies he gets swept up in a suicidal uprising in Southern Italy. Stunningly photographed with lush period detail and featuring the Taviani brothers' trademark magic realism and absurdist irony, Allonsanfàn has Mastroianni on top form as the reluctant insurgent and one of Ennio Morricone's finest scores. Radiance Films is proud to present this essential film on Blu-ray for the first time in the world.

Press Quotes

A film with an even greater thrust of excitement than the Tavianis' subsequent Padre Padrone

     —Time Out

'A film of extraordinary density and allusiveness from its opening moments, a torrent of baroque images, extravagant musics and stylistic rhetoric, posited somewhere between 19th-century melodrama and popular opera...The result may be somewhat muted politic

     —Monthly Film Bulletin

'a much richer film than a simplistic political reading permits. Mastroianni could hardly be more perfectly cast'

     —Sight & Sound

Subtly snarky, occasionally nihilistic, richly detailed with ornate set pieces and period costumes, this elegantly photographed piece shot by recurring Pasolini cinematographer Giuseppe Ruzzolini and scored with sweeping epic scope and loveliness by legendary composer Ennio Morricone and conducted by Bruno Nicolai, Allonsanfàn like The Leopard and Garibaldi before it is a sardonic tightrope walk through the past as a sly social commentary on the present.

     —Andrew Kotwicki, Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth
