Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Locarno 1974

The film depicts in a honest way the situation of an insular group of people that has let itself be pushed into excessive violence, resulting of a sudden disappearance of sensibility and human values. It shows realistically, with allegoric overtones, the importance of social responsibility and respect for the rights of the individual. In spite of a certain weakness in structure, this is a promising first work.
