You've got to put it into the context of Italian history and the desperate attempts at denial of fascism by some parts of the Italian populus. It's still quite a fascist country in some aspects and so people who attempted to fight against that are concerned that their efforts are being sullied. Dolce vita did this yesterday: http://www.blogdolcevita.com/post/942/controv...
Spike himself says it's a fictional movie, as does the guy who wrote the book

This movie sucked donkey balls. It's slow, ponderous, confusing and muddled, and a total waste of almost 3 hours! I'm glad that I didn't pay any money to see it. Spike Lee is a joke. I like how how he says nobody tells him how to make a movie, yet he has the balls to tell a legend (Eastwood) how they should've made a movie. The movie made $3.4 mil after opening in 1200 theaters over the weekend...can you say SUCKS?

Some where black , but most where not.
The Moors did use a large number of Ghulams( Slave soldiers) and they included Tuareg's and some blacks
But as far a betrayal goes, Italy was involved in a Civil war from 1943 to 1945 and there was a lot of backstabbing , betrayals and other unpleasant things going on.

Spike Lee is a Raciest.He made this FICTION film to counter his personnel problem with Clint Eastwood.

Better he made a film about the Tuskegee Airmen,Or the fantastic work of black troops in the efforts of logistics during the war.Both of these endeavors by black people helped win the war.
This NAZI massacre is well documented for those who want the facts.

Spike Lee,is one of those Angry black guys,with Fierce inferiority complexes.Get A Life spike!!

I love it how Spike Lee thinks he knows more about what happened in WWII than surviving WWII soldiers. Get over yourself Mr Lee, and try making a good movie for a change.

exactly right koloydal! the ironic thing is if it was thousands of black soldiers instead of white soldiers who died in ww2,and a white person wanted to make a movie about it,the little bigot spike lee would be crying about how whitey has no buisness writing about blacks expierences,but it's ok for him to write about someone else's.

I feel deep sorrow for the 560 victims of the massacre. However, today is October 2, 2008 and the 64th anniversary of the fall of the Warsaw Uprising during which the Germans massacred more than 200,000 civilians over the course of 63 days in reprisal for the uprising which began on August 1, 1944. Meanwhile, the Red Army stood east of the city and failed to assist the guerrillas because Stalin ordered them to standby and witness the Nazi German-perpetrated crime.

I'm from Portugal so i know my history and also Spain's History, i can say the moors did more for the Iberia (Portugal and Spain) in the years they spent here than the Iberians itself. And u can't consider a Moroccan, a Mauritanian, a Tunisian, a Egyptian black or u r one of those guys that says that everyone that comes from Africa has to be black?

What's with Spike?

He probably likes anti-Italian shows like the Sopranos also.

After all he made that one movie where the Blacks "righteously" destroyed that Italian Pizzaria at the end.

Bunch of racist monkeys!
