Only in here | can you do what you want.

...but strong and... - Here, | I can? - Yes. This is your home.

We'll crush the class | that's exploiting us.

You must stay within the law | and we will... the cost of nailing all enemies | of the people to a wall!


- Who is that? - Don Camillo. | - Make him be quiet!

You try, you'd have | to aim a cannon at the bell tower.

If he won't stop, we should | shoot him in the tower window.

You'd better kill him | on the first shot, he'll shoot back.

Why is he stopping? | Why is he letting them speak?

Is he one of them? I've always said | he was a Bolshevik priest.

Isn't that Mariolino | carrying the flag?

Yes, it's him! | He's redder than his father...

...standing on the platform. | A nice family of criminals!

Did you hear?

We will no longer tolerate any | attempts on our freedom of speech!

Those who hide | in the shadow of the Cross...

...and who seek | to misguide the people...

...are the same ones who betrayed | Christ many centuries ago.

They're attacking the Church! | They must be stopped! I can't stay.

Gina, it's you!

You look great! | Almost like a grown woman.

What should I look like, | a goat?

You used to. I'm busy now, | may I see you tonight?

Go on, ugly! | Go join your band of brigands!

Better my brigands | than your damned priests.

Comrades, | we have another comrade!

Peppone! He's beautiful! | He looks like you!

[Lf Don Camillo is ringing the bells, | it's not to celebrate his victory.]

[Lt is because he's happy | for his old enemy, Peppone.]

[Their struggle | has gone on for years.]

[They left for the war together | and returned together...]

[... always together | and always enemies.]

[One night an old abandoned house | began to burn...]
