THE MAN WHO SELLS WAR. THE BLOODIER THE BATTLE – THE HIGHER THE PRICE. HE’S GOING TO MAKE A FORTUNE ON THIS ONE.
A Caribbean Island in the mid-1800’s. Nature has made it a paradise; man has made it a hell. Slaves on vast Portuguese sugar plantations are ready to turn their misery into rebellion – and the British are ready to provide the spark. They send agent William Walker (Marlon Brando) on a devious three-part mission: trick the slaves into revolt, grab the sugar trade for England…then return the slaves to servitude.
Gillo Pontecorvo, the acclaimed director of The Battle of Algiers, explores colonialism and insurrection in the searing epic Burn! Marlon Brando delivers a complex, intelligent portrayal of a man who is both gentleman and scoundrel, revolutionary and colonialist and always considered his performance in Burn! as one of his finest. Ennio Morricone’s (The Untouchables, The Mission) haunting music memorably underscores the almost overwhelmingly powerful story.
Starring Marlon Brando, Evaristo Márquez, Renato Salvatori & Dana Ghia.
