Anita Garibaldi - 1910

Country: Italy
Release Date: September 1910 (Italy)
Production Co: Società Italiana Cines
Director: Mario Caserini
Stars: Maria Caserini
The film is basically a succession of tableaux-like scenes – with the appropriate tinting for added effect – detailing some of the key events (usually involving crowd scenes and including even some military action) that marked these turbulent times. However, it must now be viewed with sympathy as direction resorts to incessant gesticulating from virtually the entire cast (something which the Italians would, in any case, become renowned for) – punctuated by only a handful of generic intertitles – to tell the tale!
