Excellent docu-drama on civilians resisting wartime recruitment.
This documentary-style drama shows us the determination of a civilian population to end wartime conscription by a former ally. The Nazi army tries by terror to force the Italian people to join them as they struggle on against the advance of the Allied forces in WWII Italy. Citizens decide against fighting the war any longer, and rally themselves to drive out the German soldiers from their city and their lives in only four days.
I watched this film in basic training camp in 1963. I did not know at the time if I was being ordered to Southeast Asia to participate in the war there or not. I had had a vision on the firing range that an active combat role in Viet Nam would be more terrible than I could ultimately live with in later years. Fortunately, I was sent to the staging area on Okinawa, and not to Viet Nam. I saw the film again when I reached Okinawa, and became aware of the war a thousand miles away.
The film crystalized for me that mankind could choose not to fight wars to settle disputes between countries, and that passionate citizens could resist the most disciplined of armies. The Neopolitan people’s example to me from twenty years before, as I stood at the brink of the Southeast Asian war, spoke deeply to me of what humanity must strive to achieve through the advancement of its behavior and character.
I long to see the film again, or to read the source book, as world events swirl around us, echoing themes in the Four Days of Naples.
A wonderful WWII film
I saw this film when it first came out and it gripped me completely. I was quite young and not “into” foreign films, but this film caught me up. It showed a resistance that was unique — not planned, not secret, but almost spontaneous. It mixes the buffoonery of some of the characters, the cowardice of a few and the bravery of the people of Naples. Some moments bring tears, others laughter. How the people come together to fight the Nazis who were still brutally exerting their power even as the allied forces marched north in Italy is a powerful statement of the will of ordinary Italian citizens.
For years I’ve tried to buy it, Le Quattro Giornate di Napoli, with no success. Then this year,TCM showed a very clean copy of it. But still I can’t find a place to buy it. It is so worth having —
If anyone knows where I can buy it, I would be grateful.
