  1. dionysus67's rating of the film The Forbidden Christ

    Malaparte's only film is a staggering achievement, unrelenting in the methodical steps with which it unfolds the drama of the worker Bruno, beautifully incranated by Vallone. The wounds of war and Christ's "crucifixion" acquire multiple layers of interpretation, most notably in line with a Marxist utopia of the oppressed. There are chillingly moving moments and the cinematography is first class. Masterpiece!

  2. alice's rating of the film The Forbidden Christ

    Troppi discorsi, troppa retorica (che rimane tale anche se l'intenzione - di denunciare e pacificare - è buona ed onesta). Me lo sarei aspettata più simbolico-allegorico (avendo in mente i romanzi di Malaparte) ed invece è figlio del neorealismo dilagante negli anni in cui fu realizzato.

  3. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film The Forbidden Christ

    An amazing film, and beautifully photographed as well.
