An intriguing look into the desperate final days of Count Galeazzo Ciano (Wolf), the son-in-law of Mussolini, who was convicted of treason against the Fascist government of Italy. Wolf and his wife (Mangano) seek clemency from Il Duce, but when their pleas prove fruitless, they turn to

the Nazis in the hope of striking a deal that will save Wolf's life. The picture effectively depicts the atmosphere in Italy during the final days of Mussolini's reign, though Ciano's widow found enough fault with this telling of her husband's story to take the filmmakers to court. Aimed primarily

at Italian audiences, some of the film will be lost on those not familiar with the nuances of the historical moment. Longtime Italian leading lady Mangano turns in an arresting performance.
