Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In Italian with English subtitles.

Note: This is the original, uncut 132 minute version of the film. Being an Italian production, many voices, including Brando's, are dubbed in Italian. The film was released in the US as "Burn!" in an edited cut.

Sir William Walker (Marlon Brando) is the aristocratic secret agent sent by Britain to secure a profitable Portuguese sugar cane plantation for the Crown. When he arrives, he befriends the black dockworker Jose (Evaristo Marquez) and plants revolutionary ideas in his head. Walker talks Jose into robbing a bank and builds him up as a national hero in the process. Teddy Sanchez (Renato Salvatori) is the hotel desk clerk with political aspirations who falls under Walker's spell. The blacks revolt on the night of a festival parade that allows them to be disguised and move around without suspicion. Jose turns his troops over to Teddy, who assumes control of the island. Walker returns to Britain but is summoned ten years later to stop a revolution led by Jose against the now corrupt government headed by Teddy...

Queimada January 15, 2016
Reviewer: Carol Sandström from Skärholmen, Stockholm Sweden  
A shamefully neglected picture on it's release.
The short version, Burn, is already a great picture.
But this is really the one to see. Great print

Marlon Brando at his best November 6, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Homestead, FL United States  
I believe this movie is among the last ones in Marlon Brando's career and it's like a swan's song for him this masterpiece by Gillo Pontecorvo.  Also the quality of the DVD is excellent.  Years ago, I saw this movie dubbed in English, but is a delight to watch it in its original language thanks to Movie Detective.

Must-see September 28, 2015
Reviewer: Paul Stumpf from Jackson Heights, NY United States  
Moving, beautifully filmed, superbly directed, with a brilliant screenplay dissecting colonialism, civilization and capitalism. No one makes films like this anymore. Brando - although dubbed in Italian - is splendid as the cynical but ambivalent English agent, and Marquez, though not a professional actor, is excellent.  Subtitles could be better, but still a welcome opportunity to see this important film uncut.

Subtitled Brando June 30, 2015
Reviewer: Harvey Clark Greisman from Wilmington, DE United States  
Utterly different, and dramatically better, than the usually seen English language version ("Burn!") which cuts maybe a half hour of the film. In some ways superior to the director's earlier "Battle of Algiers." Brando reputedly considered this performance one of his best. Only problem, you get to hear his lines -- and everyone else's-- in Italian.
