Synopsis

Martin is a self-taught proletarian with artistic aspirations who hopes that his dreams of becoming a writer will help him rise above his station and marry a wealthy young university student. His dissatisfactions of working-class toil and bourgeois success lead to political awakening.

MUBI's take

Pietro Marcello’s widely acclaimed adaptation of Jack London’s novel—ingeniously transplanted to Naples—is cinema at its boldest and most riveting. Luca Marinelli’s enthralling and prizewinning performance propels a film intoxicated by the possibilities of social mobility, love and political change.
