  • Days of Love

    1954. Italy/France. Directed by Giuseppe De Santis, Leopoldo Savona. Screenplay by De Santis, Libero De Libero, Elio Petri, Gianni Puccini. With Marcello Mastroianni, Marina Vlady, Dora Scarpetta, Fernando Jacovolta. Two young peasants have been in love for years, but cannot afford to marry according to tradition: in a solemn, expensive ceremony with many guests. They resolve to elope, but that proves emotionally complicated and socially precarious. Broadly played—with humor, colorful characters, and imaginative sets—the film boldly addresses the issue of love barely conquering economy and prejudice. In Italian; English subtitles. 109 min.
