The Tavianis’ first feature – co-directed, like all of their early work, by Orsini – provides an early role for Gian Maria Volontè as a real-life trade unionist, Salvatore Carnevale, returning to Sicily to organise peasant farmers against the malign influence of the Mafia. Developing upon the activist documentary shorts the trio had been directing for nearly a decade. Critic Paolo Mereghetti notes that the film already shows evidence of attempts to overcome neorealism by introducing elements of political and existential reflection.
