On the advent of the th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, both the novel and the film endeavour to tell a complex, contradictory, and lesser known history of the Italian Risorgimento that interpret the founding events of the Italian unification and their impact on national identity in light of recent history. Our aim here is to reflect, informed by the ideological and creative vision of the director, on the representation of the history of Risorgimento and the shift from the novel to its cinematic adaptation.

Gius Gargiulo - Mario Martone’s Noi credevamo: History and Fiction
Though attractively shot, adequately costumed and stirringly scored with selections from Verdi, Rossini and Bellini, this bizarre selection for the main competition in the Venice film festival lacks the cinematic genes of made-for-TV crossovers like Best of Youth. Distributor 01 will give this an Italian theatrical outing in November, and co-production territory France could conceivably follow suit.

Martone — a talented film and theatre director who was once one of the great hopes of Italian cinema — is in jobbing mode here, putting his signature only on one or two baffling anachronistic touches in which we see a glimpse of a modern fire escape down which prisoners are led to execution, or a half-finished concrete building on the Calabrian coast.
