Full movie description "Johnny the Partisan":After the 8th September 1943 north of Italy is occupied by Germans. Italian army collapsed and the soldiers are escaped to the mountains trying to set up a resistance. Many civilians did the same and Johnny, an English literature student, is among them. Johnny avoids to band together the red partisans (communists) and tries to be part of the azure bands (former regular soldiers). But in both cases he is deluded by the partisan bands and discovers that the partisan war is less poetic and genuine that he thought. At one point anyway the partisans free Alba from Germans. When the city falls again in German hands Johnny escape with Ettore and Pierre. But, one after another, German army and Italian fascists captures the partisans and Johnny will pass the winter alone and isolated. He then finds the way to participate to one of the last attack to occupants, in fact the war will be over two months later.
Reviews of the Johnny the PartisanFar too long, this movie goes nowhere and basically says nothing for over two hours... The only positive aspect of this film is a very faithful recreation of the atmosphere of the 40's, the costumes where excellent, the make-up, set decoration, etc. where all very good. Unfortunately, that is all that is good in this movie, everything else is far below average, almost senseless. The endless wanderings of Johnny through the Langhe region make no sense, there is no plan, no purpose in what he and his companions are doing. If this is what the Italian partisans where really like during the war, I pity all of those who died for no reason... I doubt this was the case though.
What I believe probably happened here is that the director tried to make a faithful adaptation for the screen of a novel which is almost impossible to film. I haven't read the book, but I can imagine it must be similar in the way it is constructed to a novel by Marcel Proust. By this I mean a lot of introspective thinking, endless depictions of a state of mind, almost no narrative or plot whatsoever... Well, this is fine in a well written book, but is almost impossible to successfully transpose onto film. This novel should probably have best been left on the bookshelf where it belongs.
