#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The history of the first victim of modern artillery and its moving agony, amidst conspiracies and betrayals of the powerful. Life and death of Giovanni De’ Medici, a young brave captain in the war of Charles V against the Pope, in the first half of 1500.
Plot: In autumn of 1526, the Emperor, Charles V, sends his German landsknechts led by Georg von Frundsberg to march towards Rome. The inferior papal armies, commanded by Giovanni de’Medici, try to chase them in the midst of a harsh winter. Nevertheless, the Imperial armies manage to cross the rivers along their march and get cannons thanks to the maneuvers of its Lords. In a skirmish, Giovanni de’Medici is wounded in the leg by a falconet shot. The attempts to cure him fail and he dies. The Imperial armies assault Rome. The film is beautifully but unassumingly set, and shows the hard conditions in which war is waged and its lack of glory. It ends straightforwardly with the declaration made after the death of Giovanni de’Medici by the commanders of the armies in Europe of not using again fire weapons because of their cruelty.

An artistic movie, not an action movie
It is not an “easy” film. If you are searching for an adventure film, or a “kolossal”, you don’t find it here. But this is a beautiful movie by the artistic side, you need to watch it with calm and patience, like you have to watch a picture of a famous painter. The plot is carried out like touches of brush, the characters are “painted” over a background of ethereal landscapes, nearly soft. So, why my vote is only a 7/10? This is just because the movie is not easy, perhaps too slow for a “normal” vision. After all when I watch a movie, often, specially when I’m tired at the end of a hard day, I need to relax myself, while this movie needs much attention. I don’t think you can watch it without a little of concentration, at least the first time. Like you look at a painting.
A very cult movie back to the old Olmi’s films
If you are looking for a relaxing and commercial film don’t see this one. In my case it took me 20 minutes to get deeply involved in the plot and the film atmosphere. Is a nice biographic story of an arm maker in the Italian middle age. The countryside (shot in Romania and Bulgaria) is giantly underlined by Ermanno Olmi’s hand and all the characters were completely well represented by the actors.
Either you like the plot or not but certainly you will notice the direction of still one of the MOST important Italian directors nowadays.
