The film is set in Milan in full swing during the anti-Austrian revolt of 1848. A petty criminal, Cainazzo (Adriano Celentano) and a baker, Romulus (Enzo Cerusico), are involuntarily involved in the movements of that period, the person finding the major contradictions of the time. Assist - in the midst of idealists and patriots - an exemplary gallery of characters: aristocrats, opportunistic, bloodthirsty adventurers, traitors. Reluctantly, the two villains are overwhelmed by events. But in the face of so much injustice and violence, Romulus responds, indicating instinctively what is the point of view of the people.
The Five Days was director Dario Argento's first box office failure in Italy. Audiences were displeased with his change of genre and the stylistic differences from his Animal Trilogy (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Cat o' Nine Tails and Four Flies on Grey Velvet). Soon after, he began work on his giallo masterpiece Deep Red.
