In 1860, in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, as the day dawns on the landing of Garibaldi’s troops, four bandits called the “Drude” are at loose in what is still a lawless land, seeking their personal revenge. And the blood would flow. And flow.
“Il mio corpo vi seppellirà is more than a title: it’s the battle cry of R, a woman who has apparently lost her identity, saved from the smoking ruins of a fire; little by little, she will turn the search for her tragic past into a vendetta. And her own small odyssey, as she tries to find out who she is, might well be a metaphor for the chaotic situation of southern Italy on the eve of the Reunification of Italy, which is the setting of the film. […] The tales of the brigands and their tenacious resistance to the occupation by the Savoys are what inspired this film, along with the tragic, heroic figures who were female brigands: wild and primitive women, just like the territory itself – the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in the latter half of the 1800s, which in many ways recalls the American frontier in the western films.”
