Freshly released from a Russian POW camp, Italian soldier Raf Vallone tries to explore who betrayed his brother to the Nazis.

Vallone catches up with Lemaire, but is unable to slay him, thanks to the Christlike example of Cuny.

Il Cristo proibito Reviews:

After the Globe Fight II, the former POW in Russia Bruno Baldi (Raf Vallone) returns to his village in Toscana with the local Andrea (Luigi Tosi) with the intention of revenging his brother Giulio that was betrayed by a villager and shot by a German firing squad. However neither his parents nor his mates reveal the name of the culprit to avoid other bloodbath in their village. During a religious party, the joiner and greatest mate Antonio (Alain Cuny) discloses to Bruno that he had killed a boy twenty years ago in America and he has had problem to live with that feeling for the rest of his life. Further, he also says that he had betrayed his brother and was responsible for his death. Bruno throws his knife in the heart of Antonio; before dying, Antonio asks how Bruno should have believed that he should betray his brother and he confesses that he lied to protect the culprit. When the devastated Bruno arrives home with a stain of blood in his shirt, his mother asks if he had killed so-and-so, and says that only tears may cleanse blood from his hands. Actually Bruno seeks out the true culprit for the death of his brother. "Il Cristo Proibito" is an unknown Italian anti-war masterpiece by director Curzio Malaparte. It is impressive how this wonderful movie has only 44 votes in IMDb, indicating that a several worldwide viewers have had the possibility to watch it. I have never read or heard anything about director Curzio Malaparte, and I have just read in IMDb that he made only this film. The heartbreaking and credible storyline of justice, revenge and rue shows the results of the fight in the terrible population and the case of Antonio slightly recalls "Crime and Punishment"; further, the storyline also gives a message pro-socialism in a religious environment. The cinematography in black and white is awesome, with the test of shadows and superb camera angles. My vote is nine.Title (Brazil): "O Cristo Proibido" ("The Forbidden Christ")


In the Italian cinema,"Il Cristo Prohibito" is just the opposite of Rossellini's Neo realism,although they have common features: the documentary look at the festivities or a continual questioning about human destiny and why God asks for sacrifice,the massacre of the innocents.The last word of the film is why ? ,a word which is repeated a lot of times.The characters of the film are anything but realistic: all have a powerful guilty feeling and all test a recherché vocabulary which contrasts with their personalities (they are humble villagers),with the exception of Antonio (played by Alain Cuny who made his debut in Marcel Carné's "Les Visiteurs Du Soir" and continued his career with extremely intellectual works such as Fellini's).The film looks like a parable,some type of modernized Middle Ages mystery,with a Christ whose blood is supposed to wash all the sins away,a Judas,two Mary Magdelene and a character (played by Raf Vallone)who comes back from a Russian concentration camp to avenge his tiny brother who was shot because of an informer.It starts and ends with imposing landscapes where the figures look like ants .Like this?try this..."Celui Qui Doit Mourir" Jules Dassin 1956


This fascinating and almost wholly unknown classic was was directed by the Italian writer Curzio Malaparte, his only film. Also named "Strange Deception", it is an allegory about justice, guilt, and expiation. It narrates the storyline of a soldier (stunningly played by Raf Vallone) returning to his Italian village after Globe Fight II determined to slay the boy who had betrayed and caused the death of his brother during the Nazi occupation. Weary of bloodshed and reprisals, the villagers won't reveal the man's identity. A mate (played by Alain Cuny) is the forbidden Christ", who seeks to expiate the guilt himself. This intense, visually compelling film has to be one of the cinema's most tender elegies for the innocent. The film and its background score (composed as well by Malaparte) have many privileged moments of sublime and haunting beauty.
