An impressions after watch and edit the movie
1. About the movie
Similar to Ms. Sherry, the find-out the movie "Sacco and Vanzetti" is also from that famous song "Here's to you" in 2003. The song's solemn and stirring melody is so attractive and cause one to think deeply about. It has been singing by playing by a number of famous singers and players such as American Joan Baez, French Mirelle Mathieu, Portuguese Dulce Pontes, and French pianist Richard Clayderman, German pianist Jens Thomas ....through to April 2004, I looked a post wrote by Sherry (See here, only Chinese), I just understood that it is a famous injustices about Italian immigrants. And Sacco and Vanzetti take personal life as price, touched worldwide people who seek justice and oppose political witch-hunting included Italian famous director Giuliano Montaldo and great master Ennio Morricone.
I have looked for the movie for many years. Until the end of 2007, I just got the movie from Lajiao friend. But it is Italian dub and without subtitle. This is very difficult for common Chinese. I continue to look for its subtitle, but it is disappointing. Until May 2008, I have found an English subtitle in the Opensubtitles web site. Oh, thank very much for its contribution. I hope you will see there if you need (See below icon)
Subtitles database - OpenSubtitles.org
I spent about 10 days for translating it Chinese, I finish it at last, but it has an error of time (is 114 seconds), after adjusting, it has worked very well. God Bless, I can smoothly watch it finally.
The translating process is very hard, but it give me a good opportunity for understand it. I looked for and studied a number of American and Italian history information. More gratifying is that I found an article write by A leading authority of literature in China(1904-2005)--Bajin in 1995 (He has been 91 years old in that year!). He talked about Sacco and Vanzetti: (Below)
 
Bajin's autobiography in 1995 (See here)

 

一九二七年春天我住在巴黎拉丁区一家小小公寓的五层楼上,一间充满煤气和洋葱味的小屋子里,我寂寞,我痛苦,在阳光难照到的房间里,我想念祖国,想念亲人。在我的祖国正进行着一场革命与反革命的斗争,人民正在遭受屠杀。在巴黎掀起了援救两个意大利工人的运动,他们是沙柯(N.Sacco)和樊宰底(B.Vanzetti),他们被诬告为盗窃杀人犯,在美国麻省波士顿的死囚牢中关了六年,在我经常走过的街上到处张贴着为援救他们举行的“演讲会”、“抗议 会”的海报。我读到所谓“犯人”之一的樊宰底的“自传”,里面有这样的话:“我希望每个家庭都有住宅,每个口都有面包,每个心灵都受到教育,每个人的智慧都有机会发展。”我非常激动,樊宰底讲了我心里的话。


我的住处就在先贤祠(Pantheon)旁边,我每天都要经过先贤祠,在阴雨的黄昏,我站在卢梭的铜像前,对这位“梦想消灭压迫和不平等”的“日内瓦公民”诉说我的绝望和痛苦。回到寂寞冷静的屋子里,我坐下来求救似地给美国监狱中的死刑囚写信(回信后来终于来了,樊宰底在信中写道:“青年是人类的希望。”几个月以后,他给处死在电椅上,五十年后他们两人的冤案才得到昭雪。我在第一本小说《灭亡》的序上称樊宰底做我的先生)。就是在这种气氛、这种心情中我听着巴黎圣母院(NotreDamedeParis)报告时刻的沉重的钟声,开始写下一些类似小说的场面(这是看小说看多了的好处,不然我连类似小说的场面也写不出),让我的痛苦,我的寂寞,我的热情化成一行一行的字留在纸上....(See here or here)

Translated text(Part red): I live in fifth floor of a small apartment in Paris Latin section in 1927 spring... A motion of save two Italian workers was started in Paris, they are N.Sacco and B.Vanzetti, they was brought a false charge into theft and murderer and had been put in a jail of criminal awaiting for execution in Boston of America for 6 years. I often pass the streets pasted posters of speech meeting, demurral meeting for save them. I read Vanzetti's "Autobiography" who is one of so-called "prisoners", there is this word in it:" I hope that every family have house, every mouth have bread, every heart will get education, everyone's brightness will get a opportunity to development." I am very excite. Vanzetti said the word in my heart.

I live in near the Pantheon. I always pass the Pantheon every day. In the dusk of rainy, I stand front bronze of Rousseau, face to the "Genevese citizen" who dreams to annihilate oppress and imparity, pour out my despair and pain. When I return to loneliness room, I sit down and write to the capital prisoner in American prison like for ask come to the rescue (The reply letter came at last, vanzetti wrote in the letter: "Youth is expect of human." After a few months, he was executed in a electrical chair, their wrong was just righted after 50 years. I called Vanzetti my teacher in the preface of my first novel "Perdition")....

Mr.Bajin's article make me know that the influences of Sacco and Vanzetti case is very profound and lasting, not only includes American and Italian but as Bajin as Chinese, its influences is inestimable.
When I finished the edit and watch the movie for many times, first I remember Mao's celebrated dictum:" Without the love for nothing at all, and also without the hate for nothing at all in the world" Take a panoramic view of the whole movie, all figures' love and hate is very clear. One side is the defence, It includes the members of Sacco and Vanzetti defend committee, relatives and friends, attorneys, the reporter named Rennie who's report is not be well received by boss, the Italian consul who appears in the court and bears witness for Sacco, and all universities in Massachusetts and 474,842 signers for present the petition (Below is a still-- 01:41:05 When secretary reports the names of these universities to governor Fuller, Fuller impatient say:"Just tell me the ones missing." Make him surprised is that the secretary unexpectedly says:"None,Sir.")and worldwide demonstrate and petitionary people. They not to distinguish nationality, occupation, belief, love justic, hate persecute; Another side is just as Fuller said:" represented by president Coolidge,judge Thayer, the governor and every guard of this prison....this system" (Below Still 01:51:06)
 
 
They are apologist of existing social system, hate who all oppugn and revolt it, include labor organise, advancement party, anarchist, socialist and left wing advancement personage, especially those radical, must purge them as possible. It just is the root cause of the injustices. Just as Vanzetti said before the sentence of death:"I am suffering because I am a radical,and indeed I am a radical,and because I was an Italian,and indeed I am an Italian. (Below still 01:43:54)
 
The another episode of the movie also is a good exemplification, prosecuting attorney Katzman ask Sacco whether love America and love the government of the United States, below is the dialogue and still:
 
 
Katzman: You don't love this country, do you?
Sacco: .Why do you say that? I love this country.
Katzman: Did you also love it in May of 1917?
Sacco: That is not so easy to explain...
Katzman: You didn't understand the question?You need the interpreter?
Sacco: No, it's not necessary, I understood.
Katzman: .Then answer with a yes, or a no.
Sacco: .Yes.
Katzman: You say you loved this country...but when you needed to serve it as a soldier,you ran away to Mexico?
................
Katzman: Do you love the government of the United States?
Sacco: I do not love the government of the United States.
...............
Katzman: So your relation with the United States is just a work relation,measured by how much money you get.Mr. Sacco, this is the love you have for our country, isn't it?Measured in dollars and cents.
-------------
Sacco: You speak of dollars and cents, sir.Lets speak about millions of dollars.If you speak of an industry manager or the head of a bank, who donates money to a university everybody says:What a great man he is!But I have worked 13 years in this free country,doing what I've been told to.I have worked like a slave,and still I don't own anything,not a single dollar.In here, all you here is:
"Passport, passport!".But when I went to the consulate to organize my journey back,to be repatriated...I didn't even have money to pay for the trip!After thirteen years I would return to my homeland with nothing.Like when I started.....This is why I became an anarchist,I just wanted to live a decent life...that our children would get education,a good start.White, blacks that's not important.However, the capitalist class who just accumulate money in the banks,and command young people to go to war, to death...We don't want that. We don't accept it.We don't accept the war.

It is unnecessary to say more. The existence determines consciousness, economic status determines political viewpoint. The contradiction between the state power and who revolt against this power is irreconcilable contradiction between two classes. Perhaps below caricature can explain some problem:
 
From American movie "Sacco and Vanzetti (2006)" (Still 00:35:06)
From American movie "Sacco and Vanzetti (2006)"
In 2007, China translated and pressed a book named "The Italian 100--A ranking of the most influential cultural, scientific, and political figures, past and present". Its writer is American Stephen J.Spignesi(here and here). Sacco and Vanzetti was ranked in 91st. If you are interested in it, you can have a look it.

2 About the music
We have published a web page about the music of the movie (See here), so here only provide 3 parts with famous music of the movie:
The Ballad Of Sacco and Vanzetti-1
Composed by Ennio Morricone, sung by Joan Baez

Give to me your tired and your poor
your huddled masses yearning to breath free
the wretched refuge of your teeming shore
send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me

Blessed are the persecuted
and blessed are the pure in heart
Blessed are the merciful
and blessed are the ones who mourn

The step is hard that tears away the roots
and says goodbye to friends and family
The fathers and the mothers weep, the children cannot comprehend
But when there is a promised land
the brave will go and others follow
The beauty of the human spirit
is the will to try our dreams
And so the masses teemed arcoss the ocean to a land of peace and

hope
but no one heard a voice or saw a light
as they were tumbled onto shore
and none was welcomed by the echo of the phrase
I'll lift my lamp beside the golden door

Blessed are the persecuted
and blessed are the pure in heart
Blessed are the merciful
and blessed are the ones who mourn

The Ballad Of Sacco and Vanzetti-3
Composed by Ennio Morricone, sung by Joan Baez
The lyric is from a letter wrote by Sacco in the jail for his son

My son, instead of crying be strong
Be brave and comfort your mother
Don't cry for the tears I wasted
Let not also the years be wasted

Forgive me son for this unjust death
which takes your father from your side
Forgive me all who are my friends
I am with you so do not cry

If mother wants to be distracted
from the sadness and the soulness
you take her for a walk
among the quiet country
and rest beneath the shade of trees
where here and there you gather flowers
Beside the music and the water
there is the peacefulness of nature
She will enjoy it very much
and surely you'll enjoy it too
But sin you must remember
do not use it on yourself
but down yourself one little step
to help the weak ones by your side

Forgive me son for this unjust death
which takes your father from your side
Forgive me all who are my friends
I am with you so do not cry

The weaker ones that cry for help
the persecuted and the victims
they are your friends
and comrades in the fight
and yes they sometimes fall
just like your father
Yes your father and Bartolo
they have fallen
And yesterday the fought and fell
but in the quest for joy and freedom
And in the struggle of this life you'll find
that there is love and sometimes more
Yes in the struggle you will find
that you can lave and be loved also

Forgive me all who are my friends
I am with you
I beg of you, do not cry

Here's to you
Composed by Ennio Morricone, sung by Joan Baez

The lyric mainly is from a speak of a famous anarchism personage Emma Goldman in the commemorate meeting for they was executed for one year

Here's to you Nicolas and Bart
Rest forever here in our hearts
The last and final moment is yours
That agony is your triumph
