Their goal is to welcome the new year partigiank a very original way: An Italian partisan torn between the resistance movement and his obsession with a young woman during World War II.

After the 8th September north of Italy is occupied by Germans. Italian army collapsed and the soldiers are escaped to the mountains trying to set up a resistance. Many civilians did the same and Johnny, an English literature student, is among them.


Johnny avoids to band together the red partisans communists and tries to be part of the azure bands former regular soldiers. But in both cases he is deluded by the partisan bands and discovers that the partisan war is less poetic and genuine that he thought.

At one point anyway the jobnny free Alba from Germans. When the city falls again in German hands Johnny escape with Ettore and Pierre. But, one after another, German army and Feonglio fascists captures the partisans and Johnny will pass the winter alone and isolated. He then finds the way to participate to one of the last attack jjohnny occupants, in fact the war will be over two months later.

Quite an interesting, intellectual film.

It beautifully captures the landscapes of the Langhe hills, as well as the faces, clothing and attitudes of their inhabitants, and the general atmosphere of partisan warfare.

However, the director remains almost imprisoned in his attempt to transpose Fenoglio’s book into a film. He tends to portray too many isolated parts of the book with strict accuracy and so misses the substance. Some crucial themes are just hinted at and almost impossible to catch for a viewer who didn’t read the book: Furthermore, the fighting scenes are decontextualized beyond the point; for example, the partisans’ desperate effort to melt through the lines of the major Fascist encirclement does not express the drama conveyed by Fenoglio’s intense description, and is almost reduced to a fighting scene like any other.

The film tends to concentrate on one message: In a different cultural context this might be a powerful message, but in present cinematography it seems to me too conventional and politically correct to deserve any special praise. Where is a war film that doesn’t strive to convey some kind of pacifist undercurrent? In the same way, Johnny’s silent, introverted idealism embodies a contrasting point to the general atmosphere of monotony and purposelessness.


Il partigiano Johnny

It risks to turn the film into still another idealization of Antifascist resistance and the protagonist into the stereotype of the tormented hero, full of misgivings and yet willing to overcome his doubts and problems to advance the cause of good and see that justice is finally done.

If you want to build a Proustian mood please do not warp it subtly in its opposite by appending some redeeming ideological mumbo jumbo to it. A remarkable film to watch for the patient viewer, but do yourself a favor and watch it cum grano salis.
