Alain Delon as an orphan whose economic plight compels him first to the wages of the Blackshirts, then to the motions of Anarchism and terrorism; the motions, of course, to maintain the esteem that Barbara Lass' huge eyes cast on ideology in action--fake bombs for the love of a young subversive element. Through the humour, a final indictment of Italian Fascism, on the rayless horizon, the years to come.
