Italy, 1952
Drama

Synopsis

The intense, oft-overlooked Europe ’51 was, according to Rossellini, a retelling of his own The Flowers of St. Francis from a female perspective. As a way of dealing with grief over the death of her young son, a self-absorbed Rome socialite devotes her time and money to the city’s poor and sick.
