"This is a great movie. Beautiful views of the Italian sea and coast. Great acting by Yves Montand and others. A moving story of struggle and solidarity among poor fisherman. An inspiring message about the possibilities of the downtrodden coming together and making a difference in their lives. This is a great political movie that succeeds in moving and informing us without slipping into didactic preaching."
