1961. France/Italy. Roberto Rossellini. Adapted by Jean Grault, Rossellini, et al., based on a story in Stendhals Chroniques Italiennes. With Sandra Milo, Laurent Terzieff. In the 1820s, a Roman princess falls in love with a young revolutionary determined to free Italy from papal rule. Interference by the producer, who imposed his mistress on the film and removed scenes with other actresses, caused Rossellini to denounce the film, but many Rossellini admirers claim there remains enough of the artist for this period melodrama to be of interest. In Italian, English subtitles. 118 min.
