A beautiful video master, transferred from a new negative, of this key film of Italian Neo-Realism, shot largely during the Nazi occupation of Rome. Two resistance leaders, one a Communist, the other a priest, work toward weakening the German occupation. The cumulative power of Rossellini's feeling for his subject was translated into a visual intensity that makes the picture sometimes almost impossible to watch. With a great performance by Anna Magnani. Italian with English subtitles. Roberto Rossellini---Italy---1945---103 mins.
