A masterpiece of Italian Cinema. Alain Delon, Renato Salatori, Claudia Cardinale and Annie Giradot star in this harrowing and challenging tale of a poor southern Italian family who move to Milan, a thriving industrial land of hope.
Beset by violent troubles, their lives far from improving, get worse.

Renato Salvatori as the thuggish elder brother gives the performance of a lifetime opposite saintly son Alain Delon.

A milestone in political cinema, this film will remain a classic forever.
