After FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET, Dario Argentostepped away from giallo to create what remains the only non-horror/thriller – and least-seen film – of his career: Set during 1848’s five-day siege of Milan by the Austrian army, a cynical thief (pop star Adriano Celentano) teams with a naïve young baker (Enzo Terascio of THE DEAD ARE ALIVE!) to survive the brutality and absurdity of the Italian Revolution. Marilù Tolo (THE SCORPION WITH TWO TALES), Glauco Onorato (BLACK SABBATH) and Salvatore Baccaro (aka ‘Sal Boris’ of THE BEAST IN HEAT) co-star in this dark action-comedy that reflected turbulent ‘70s Italy and Argento’s own politics, from a story co-written by Enzo Ungari (THE LAST EMPEROR) and Luigi Cozzi (PAGANINI HORROR) with a rousing score by Giorgio Gaslini (DEEP RED), now scanned in 4K from the original negative with over 4½ hours of all-new Special Features.
