  2. Luca Soldati's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    Ottime le critiche portate avanti, eleganti e intelligenti. Vengono presi di mira i moti studenteschi, inconcludenti e troppo idealisti, e i sindacati, collusi con gli spietati padroni. Gli operai sono le vere vittime del sistema e trattati come bestie. Ottimo protagonista, che fa provare empatia verso gli operai. Ritmo ottimo e presenza di scene bellissime. Triste, ma riuscitissimo il finale. Ottime musiche

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    Palme d'Or at Cannes's Film Festival. Three years after the events of May 1968 in Paris, Elio Petri describes a strike in a factory of the industrial North of Italy with the point of view of Lulu, a working man. The observations of Elio Petri are rather sardonic as we are attending the diverse manipulations of the unions. I liked the reference to Chaplin's 'Modern Times' as well as Gian Maria Volonté's performance.

  8. Stevie's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    Down with the wall! Down with class differences! Volonté is perfectly manic here and the camera work in the factory is brilliantly fluid.

  9. Giulia Galbarini's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    "… questa Lulù non è pazzia, perché un uomo… un uomo ha il diritto di sapere quello che fa a che cosa serve!" – Militina

  10. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

  11. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    As relevant today as it was when it first came out. Here is a haunting film about the mistreatment of the middle class and the carelessness of capitalist bosses.

  13. Peter Box's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    Di lotta di operai e studenti!

  14. Minu's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    A magnificent illustration of the illusion that the authority could be undermined through revolt, as if a mouse should feel free to have arrived in a small room with a few more grains, of course under the supervision of the researcher. Lulu's madness gradually turns into a performance that culminates with the meaningful end of the film.

  15. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Working Class Goes to Heaven

    Bellissimo film-denuncia di Petri sull'alienazione della classe operaia,carico di atmosfere vividissime e girato con partecipazione,classe e grande acume descrittivo.Qualche forzatura nella trama,ma con un Volontè assoluto mostro sacro,forse il più grande attore italiano di sempre.Angoscioso ed importante documento sociologico dei suoi tempi,che ha anche il grande merito di rimanere attuale:veramente superbo.

    Ciao amiciui, qui si faceva la storia del cinema. Poi Gesù ha deciso che dovessero arrivare gli anni '80 anche in Italia.
