  5. Mr. Manna Bigger's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Film tanto bello quanto realistico. Dinamiche mai sopite a livello nazionale e non, sempre attuale e godibile

  6. Natalia La Terza's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    «E leva ‘sto cane! Porta scalogna, te l’ho detto mille volte!» Una frase che voglio pensare scritta da Dudù. Una Napoli unica: Sorrentino impara e impara bene.

  7. janh24's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Astonishing in many ways.

  8. Steve Thompson's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    One of finest, and bravest, films about power and corruption ever made. With magnificent acting, particularly from Carlo Fermariello's communist counsellor and Rod Steiger's unscrupulous property developer, Rosi's film carries the chilling force of ancient drama while also realising the complexities and unedifying murk of municipal procedure. As a creative and moral essay it is stylish, austere and profound.

  9. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Understated political drama on the corruption of Naples' city planning council. Rosi's film isn't the quickest or thrilling, but it's an accomplished production with a tight script and some superbly staged scenes. The most startling thing about Rosi's film is the way he crams scenes with so much life and noise, every speech is impassioned and bellowed out as the camera surveys the organised, political chaos.

  10. raggiodisole's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    the battle for power, the force of rhetoric in the face of reality. great, the type of cinema that Italy so excels at

  11. Chichi Latté's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Neopolitan councillors grappling with the concept of conflict of interest. Worth it for the stark and painterly scenes of bedlam in the council chambers. Rod Steiger is somehow upstaged by a non-actor and real-life communist party politician whose eyes sparkle with indignant repulsion when the rhetoric flies.

  12. Allan Struthers's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Certainly a film that requires you to don your political thinking cap. Excellent drama that at times, particularly in the parliamentary scenes, has the grandiosity of certain renaissance artworks. A compelling depiction of power that seems to be constantly balancing on the brink of chaos, its beauty is imbued with a sense of political discourse that might well make us question our contemporary vision of progress.

  13. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    ★★★★ Democracy in the works.

  14. Knut Morte's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VUXJoUP1Qg Best film I ever did see. It's so good it's real. Business in collusion with state = fascism. Gawd damn fascist bastards slave driving and killing the workers and people

  15. John V.'s rating of the film Hands Over the City

  16. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Absolutely riveting. A beautifully made film with a real purpose.

  17. Pulpwino's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    A lot of shouting..........a relevant topic, but certainly boring and redundant in stretches.

  18. Kyle Lewis's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    An extremely relevant work. Rosi conveys this story of political corruption superbly.

  19. Kamran's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    want to give this a 3.5. Hate the music in it. Good film overall though.

  20. Umberto L.'s rating of the film Hands Over the City

    Powerful, smart and visually stunning (thanks to the superb direction by F. Rosi and the copybook cinematography by G. Di Venanzo, very close to the one used the same year for Fellini's "8 1/2"). It is more than an exceptional work-of-art, it is a brilliant lesson of politics and life, an overwhelming more-than-topical fact-finding work. A masterpiece.

  21. IBBK's rating of the film Hands Over the City

    "Our hands are clean!" Maybe , the best film about corruption.
