A Sardinian peasant is suspected of murder following an encounter with bandits. In order to survive, he has no option but to turn to banditry himself. Winning multiple awards at the Venice Film Festival, Bandits of Orgosolo continues the traditions of Visconti and De Sica, yet with his own style and rhythms, Vittorio De Seta musters just as much power as the earlier masters. Despite awards and plaudits on release this incredible film only now makes its debut on home video. Upon release, Bandits moved Martin Scorsese to observe: "It was as if De Seta were an anthropologist who spoke with the voice of a poet."

Press Quotes

It was as if De Seta were an anthropologist who spoke with the voice of a poet

     —Martin Scorsese, Full Frame

[De Seta is] to be remembered alongside the Rossellinis and De Sicas, the Antonionis and the Fellinis

     —Goffredo Fofi , Understanding Cinema

De Seta captured the rhythms and rituals of everyday life... [his films] stand as essential, ennobling records of a vanished world

     —J. Hoberman, The Criterion Channel
