In Detail

Giorgio Manfredi (Marcello Pagliero), one of the leaders of the Italian Resistance, is tracked down by the Nazis. He goes to his friend Francesco's (Francesco Grandjacquet) and asks Francesco's fiancé Pina (Anna Magnani) for help, who in turn enlists the aid of a courageous priest (the excellent Aldo Fabriz).

The visceral cinematography blends the grit of a documentary with the heart and soul of a drama (Fellini collaborated with Rosselini on the screenplay) as the people of Rome wrestle with the constraints, compromises and collusions of life during wartime. Described by Martin Scorsese as "the most precious moment of film history". Do you need any more reason to see this film?

We will also be screening three further Italian Neo-Realist masterpieces this season: ‘Stromboli’, ‘The Machine That Kills People’ and the iconic ‘Bicycle Thieves’.
