The Man who sells war, the bloodier the battle - the higher the price. He's going to make a fortune on this one. From the acclaimed director of the "The Battle Of Algiers" Gillo Pontecorvo explores colonialism and insurrection in this visually and narratively stunning film. Marlon Brando gives an impressive performance as 19th century English mercenary and agent provocateur Sir William Walker sent to a Caribbean island run the Portuguese, and manages by Machiavellian manipulations to engineer a slave revolt that gives the British what they want - power and money. "Burn" glows with the fires of Pontecorvo's unique filmmaking genius and Brando's portrayal of a man who is both gentleman and scoundrel, revolutionary and colonialist ranks amongst his best performances. Ennio Morricone's haunting music underscores a very powerful story.
