194346. Directed by Rossellini, Marcello Pagliero. With Elli Parvo, Massimo Girotti. In the spirit of Viscontis early and influential Neorealist melodrama Ossessione (1942), Rossellini in 1943 began shooting a dark drama of illicit passions, Freight Yards, with Ossessiones screenwriter, Giuseppe de Santis, and its star, Massimo Girotti. Although Allied bombers interrupted Rossellinis shoot, after the war his colleague Marcello Pagliero completed this fatalistic narrative about a call girl under the new title Desire. In Italian, English subtitles. 79 min.
