This documentary was distilled from a 3 1/2-hour television film Nessuno o Tutti, to make the point that many inmates now in mental hospitals could be released without harm to society, and to their advantage.

MUBI's take

By giving voice to patients’ experiences, this groundbreaking documentary contributed to a groundswell of change in Italian psychiatric institutions. A raw cinematic clarion call for justice and an early collaboration between some of Italy’s great directors, like Bellocchio and Agosti.
