This article discusses the Netflix film Robbing Mussolini, including the release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer.

Towards the end of this month, Netflix is releasing a brand new original film in the form of Robbing Mussolini. It is an Italian import set in the period during World War 2 when the arrival of Allied Forces was imminent, and it looks to be quite a treat in terms of entertainment value.

Sounds good? Let’s take a closer look at Robbing Mussolini:

Netflix film Robbing Mussolini plot synopsis

Here is the official plot synopsis:

“At the end of WWII, a ragtag group of resistance fighters plans an impossible heist: to steal Mussolini’s treasure from Milan’s fascist headquarters.”

Our opinion of the premise

There is a lot to unpack with Robbing Mussolini. It seems to have been created in the ‘what if’ style (think Inglorious Basterds if you’re not quite sure what I mean), which surely lifts all sense of narrative restrictions when it comes to the writing and the way the film has been put together. For that quality alone, it should be a very interesting watch. However, sprinkle in the fact that at its very core, Robbing Mussolini appears to be a heist film, and suddenly there’s real potential that this could appeal to a wide variety of viewers. The general heist cocktail mix is something that everyone can get on board with in some way or another, thanks to the hugely varied nature of all of the elements that go into this particular sub-genre. At the very least, it shouldn’t be a stale watch.

The film will be released globally on Netflix on Wednesday, October 26th, at 12 am PT.

When you really dive in and take a closer look, Robbing Mussolini has an awful lot going for it. Action comedy heist is a cracking mix of genres to play with, and when you consider the time period in which it is set and all of the more aesthetic elements that go with that, such as costume and set design, this is a film that has massive potential to be a real treat for anyone willing to give it the time. And, with a runtime of 90 minutes, it’s not a huge investment at all to have to make in order to find out! There is a lot to like about Robbing Mussolini on the quiet — it will be interesting to see if and how it lives up to its potential and become a film that really breaks out on its streaming home.
