Summary
  • Dov'é la libertà?: Rossellini's darkly comic satire showcases the great Italian comic Totò as a barber who is imprisoned for murdering his wife's suspected lover. After twenty years, Salvatore leaves the prison walls to find the world he once knew gone. His wife is dead, he encounters one deceitful person after another, and his family and friends are even more disloyal. Salvatore realizes he has no choice but to find a way back to prison where he feels certain he will be happier
  • Era notte a Roma: In this emotional war drama set in Nazi-occupied Rome, a beautiful bootlegger gives sanctuary to three escaped POWs, an American pilot, a Russian sergeant and a British major. By taking them in, she tragically jeopardizes the safety of her Communist lover while the confinement of the trapped prisoners brings their uneasy alliance to a boiling point, symbolizing the chaos of the world around them
