"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container

La terra trema episodio del mare ( Visual )
in Italian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Visconti's remarkable study of poverty and corruption in the South centred on a Sicilian fishing village was conceived as an intransigently revolutionary drama part funded by the Communist Party. However the realities of Aci-Trezza prevailed over ideology and the film became a classic humanist work, a non-naturalistic elemental study of poverty which owed more to Flaherty (Man of Aran) and Eisenstein (Que Viva Mexico) than to Marx. There nevertheless remains a creative tension between pessimistic fatalism and the possibilities of human action. In comparison with Rocco (which was initially to be its sequel) Visconti, the aristocratic Marxist aesthete, working on location with the villages of Aci-Trezza, achieved something of a synthesis between the bourgeois naturalism of Verga and the revolutionary cultural politics of Gramsci
