In turn-of-the-twentieth-century Turin, an accident in a textile factory incites workers to stage a walkout. But it's not until they receive unexpected aid from a traveling professor that they find a voice, unite, and stand up for themselves. This historical drama by Mario Monicelli is a beautiful and moving ode to the power of the people, brimming with humor and honesty.

neo-realistic mixed with some humour and a Chaplinesque Marcello.

sadly, the ending is to be expected.

This movie surprised me a lot. It was funnier, darker, and realer than I expected, and pretty beautiful to look at.

Heartfelt paean to 19th Century Italian factory workers. Not much acting but good sets and plenty of buona volontà e cameratismo.
