24 November 2008 | by TahomaSee all my reviews

I Vicere' is one of those movies that makes you think. The subject is southern Italy in the 18th - 19th century, where a noble family of Spanish origin faces am intense internal struggle to survive the political movement - led by Garibaldi - that condemns the noble families and seeks to unite Italy under one nation. In the film, you can see how dysfunctional this family was (which really existed), and how it seeks to keep the power and authority it has always had under the new political system.

My personal impression ? It made me contemplate how those in power act, in what they believe and how they do their best to keep a position of power through time; not caring about emotions, inter-personal relations, or what's actually good for the people.

Verdict: Very very good watch and worth every minute spent in front of the television !
