    In my humble, the greatest strike film ever. Makes other notable entries in this worthy sub genre, like "Norma Rae", look like well intentioned child's play in comparison. Through the genius of Mario Monicelli's direction and Giuseppe Rotunno's camera the viewer is thoroughiy immersed in late 19th century industrial Turin in all its grimy, cold, damp, bleak squalor. Ending too is properly hopeless, with perhaps a glimmer of optimism, as befits Italian neo realism.And the performances are amazingly good, highlighted (but not limited) by Mastroianni of course in the title role, Renato Salvatori who we see in the course of the film grow from skirt chasing punk to revolutionary, Bernard Blier as the weasliest of the strikers and especially Folco Lulli as the most passionate of them, whose death is the biggest blow to their cause. If this movie aint an A then my rating system sucks and I'm not prepared to admit that possibility.

  • Striking view of the Labor Movement

    This is as fine an example of what was best in Italian Cinema during the 60's to me!I felt as if I was transported to the late 19th Century and was witnessing the birth of the European Labor Movement. As a lifelong Union Member, I've learned much of our Labor's history in the United States. Naturally I was open to the mindset that Unions are Institutions for the common good of it's Members and offered them protection from abuse and the basic human dignity all people deserve but easily denied. I am also a fan of Cinema with an interest in what was created in Italy after WW-2. To me, this was as good as it got. I miss it but thanks to TCM for allowing me to view another masterpiece of the genre. BTW, I couldn't agree more with the review hermann posted above. No need to repeat what's already been most eloquently stated.

  • Wonderful movie! -- don't miss it

    Factory workers in 1890's Italy? Sounds like a snoozer, doesn't it? Only I've seen this. It's a great movie, one of my very favorite foreign films. It's a very engrossing movie, often humorous, often moving, filled with many memorable, quite human and appealing characters. Highest recommendation!
