What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Angelina

    Post-War Italian Cinema!! Fans of Anna Magnani will not be disappointed. Here she plays Angelina, the working-class hero, a reluctant hero who saves the day despite her toady husband, fickle neighbors and seven kids, including a nursing infant and a teen who is dating the bourgeois oppressor's son. Beautiful cinematography and a great supporting cast of mostly nonprofessionals; really a wonderful film. 4.5 stars.
