Bandits in Milan (Italian: Banditi a Milano; also known as The Violent Four) is a 1968 Italian crime film directed by Carlo Lizzani. It was listed to compete at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival,[2] but the festival was cancelled due to the events of May 1968 in France.[3] It is the debut film of Agostina Belli.[4][page needed]


Like director Carlo Lizzani's previous film Wake Up and Die is based on a real life event, specifically a bank robbery that went wrong in Milan on 25 September 1967.[1]



Bandits in Milan was released on 30 March 1968.[1] It grossed just over ₤1.768 billion in Italy.[1] As of 2013, the film has never been released on home video.[1]
