Set during the Nazi occupation of Rome, Roberto Rossellini’s 1945 masterpiece follows resistance leader Giorgio as he enlists the help of lithographer Francesco, Pina, Francesco’s pregnant fiancée, and priest Don Pietro.
Made in the aftermath of Rome’s liberation, Rossellini uses his trademark neorealist style to devastating effect with on location shots of ravaged streets and naturalistic performances from his cast of professional and non-professional actors.
