Sinopsis: 1816. The last revolutionaries, members of the secret society of the Sublime Brothers, try to hold out. They are carborari, disciples of Babeuf and Buonarroti. One of the Sublime Brothers, the noble Fulvio, is ill, old and tired and being pursued by the police. He takes refuge in the family home and dreams of a new, different life: the end of the political activity that has destroyed his personal ambitions. But his former comrades press him to carry on helping them.
Bio: Brothers and film directors Vittorio (San Miniato, 1929) and Paolo (San Miniato, 1931) Taviani are known for a style of filmmaking that is both political and lyrical. Centred on social problems in the south of Italy, their films offer a Marxist reflection on the class struggle: I sovversivi (1967), Padre padrone (1976), Kaos (1984), Good Morning, Babilonia (1987), Fiorile (1993), Le affinità elettive (1996) and Tu ridi (1998).
