Italian filmmaker Camillo Mastrocinque continued the trend of Italian realism, which began in the 1940s, in Fighting Men by pitting commoners against their local mafia. Shot in beautiful Sicily, Fighting Men is so real and so tragic, so beautiful and so hideous, that it almost feels like a surrealist nightmare! But though the film captures the essence of ordinary life in Sicily, it also engages in plenty of action and Mafioso violence and mayhem. The cinematography and exceptional acting, in particular Rossano Brazzi, makes Fighting Men an artistic and tragic experience.
