Full movie description "The Pagans":Rome, 1527. Massimo Colonna is in love with Angela, a member of the Orsinis, the Colonnas'arch enemies. As she is officially engaged to Tancredi Serra, the latter, a faithless individual, has Massimo accused of the murder of Prince Orsini whereas he himself has woven it. Massimo is rejected by an outraged Angela and banned from Rome.Meanwhile the Eternal City has to face a brutal attack by armed invaders from Spain. The Spaniards are about to storm Rome when Massimo and his troops appear. The invading forces are defeated and Massimo is acclaimed by the crowd. After clearing his name, he can marry Angela.
Reviews of the The PagansThis is an obscure early i.e. monochrome Italian spectacle with unimposing credentials, but which proves surprisingly decent in the long run. It deals with Romeo and Juliet-like vicissitudes, albeit set in Rome, at the time of famed 16th century sculptor Benvenuto Cellini on the strength of which I will be watching presently two loose biopics, one emanating from 1930s Hollywood and another likewise from the "Euro-Cult" stable but made a decade later and filmed in color, as part of my Easter Epic marathon!
Incidentally, both English-language titles of the film under review are misleading: the original, in fact, translates to THE SACKING OF ROME (a real historical event the oppressors being the Spanish armada of King Charles V that was also dealt with by the cinema in 1910 and 1920). Shot on authentic locations, THE BARBARIANS looks quite good making up for a hackneyed script and some rather stiff swordplay (with the participants invariably coming across as if they were attending fencing classes instead of being engaged in a duel to the death!); on the other hand, the climactic siege is competently-enough staged.
The acting, too, is hardly classy but the two leads are perfectly acceptable under the circumstances: Pierre Cressoy seemed to thrive within the genre, while Helene Remy (surprisingly displaying a prominent cleavage throughout!) would later star in a seminal albeit minor Gothic Horror entry i.e. Renato Polselli's THE VAMPIRE AND THE BALLERINA (1960). Also on hand in a supporting role is Franco Fabrizi, who would soon be elevated to leading man status himself and eventually corner the market in shady character actor parts.
