Ambitious Italian drama.
15 September 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The political thriller is one of the best traditions in European film making. For Annarita Zambrano to move into this company with her first feature AFTER THE WAR, with a first time writer and young Charlotte Cétaire in her first role, is a big ask and it's impressive to see how far they get.

The opening is riveting, with a university professor leaving an angry 2002 student meeting to be gunned down. The assassin claims to be from The New Armed Faction for the Revolution, a long dormant Italian movement from the "Years of Lead" eighties political turmoil.

This impacts on Giuseppe Battison, one of the movement's former leaders now sheltering in France under a Mitterand era amnesty. One of his fellow exiles has been repatriated to face jail in his native Italy and Battison goes on the run, hiding out in a dilapidated Contis des Bains farm with his daughter Cétaire who was about to compete in her school sports contest and sit for her bac.

This is a treatment of a dominant Sidney Lumet preoccupation, the grown children of the second half Twentieth Century left. Think DANIEL, RUNNING ON EMPTY or GARBO TALKS. It makes an interesting comparison.

Parallel with Battison's flight, his sister the still great looking Barbora Bobulova finds her association with a terrorist brother she hasn't seen for twenty years jeopardises her position as a lecturer, her progressive judge husband's election as chief magistrate and the safety of her mother Elisabetta Piccolomini through whose window a brick with the word "assassin" has been heaved.

The weight of the film falls on Battison whose character is given exceptional depth. He killed the judge who had condemned his associates in front of the man's eight year old child but only after he had seen his own brother shot down "sous mes yeux" by police after he had surrendered his weapon. Speaking French, (this is a French movie despite it's Italian star and subject) he is stretched to his limits. The amiable fat man comic of his earlier films has a role which would have challenged Gian Maria Volonte at his peak. The ending we are given fails to exploit the tensions the film has established.

Zambrano's handling is more at ease with film form, spacing the dialogue with effective locating footage - Bobulova in the street with graffiti like that of the opening, Cétaire caressing the kittens in the barn or cycling through the striped shadows the line of trees throw on the road or the glimpsed night time fair.

With it's possibly inevitable shortcomings AFTER THE WAR is still an imposing piece of work. It should be seen.
