Plot Outline:

A postal worker shoots a man in cold blood and a marble statue head is found in his closet. The story behind this decorated veteran goes back to WWII, where four Buffalo soldiers hole up in a small Italian village, behind enemy lines, with a small child, clashing personalities and constant threat of attack. -- Chris Kavan

Directed by Spike Lee and written by James McBride, based on McBride's novel of the same name. The film is set during World War II, in fall of 1944 in Tuscany and in the winter of 1983 in New York City and Rome. The film stars Derek Luke, Laz Alonzo, Michael Ealy, and Omar Benson Miller, and co-stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Valentina Cervi, and John Turturro.What a pretentious and poor movie.In my oppinion i never think Spike Lee as a great director, but this movie is too much for my patience!A horrible screenplay with an horrible soundtrack and a real festival of bad performances make the act of watching this movie an exercise of patience.Argh!

While not Spike Lee's best, I think it's better than most give it credit for. It could have moved a bit quicker, but overall I thought it worked well enough. It may not be earth-shattering, but it is worth a watch.

It's just as good as most Spike Lee joints. But, it's nothing spectacular. All in all, it's a pretty good movie.

Better than what you've heard

Aside from the beginning scenes and the epilogue the majority of the film takes place in 1944 where four members of 92nd Infantry Division (Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso, Omar Benson Miller) find themselves cut-off from their unit and trapped in a small Italian town in the Tuscan countryside surrounded by German troops.

The film is about secrets which are slowly unveiled to the audience, though not necessarily the characters, over the course of the movie. The discovery of the small child (Matteo Sciabordi) in 1944 who survived the Sant’Anna di Stazzema massacre and the murder and discovery of the artifact by the police at cub reporter Tim Boyle (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in 1983, at the beginning of the film, are but two pieces of a much larger story.

There’s much here to discus...

3.5/4
