Europe '51 1952

  • Roberto Rossellini
  • August 28, 1952
  • 113 mins
  • Italian
  • Drama
Is a provocative, haunting, and compassionate examination of the isolating and often misunderstood path of personal redemption and spiritual service in contemporary society. Composed of alternating sequences of daytime and nighttime episodes, the film presents a recurring visual dichotomy that illustrates the polarizing division between wealth and poverty, spirituality and materialism, vanity and humility, selfishness and benevolence.

This is an amazingly brilliant movie.. the cinematography and acting are fantastic. It's something like dostoevsky's The Idiot in theme / plot, and it's difficult to imagine that it wasn't inspired in part by that, but it is definitely a different and more modern narrative.

Really great, it's a shame as of this posting that it has 0 watchers, 0 plays, and 0 ratings here.
