What are people saying?

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Gold of Rome

    One of Lizzani's best films, this reconstruction of the Jews' persecution in Rome during the final stage of WWII is both historically enlightening and dramatically intense. The Jewish community is marked by inner divisions over tactics and individual self-interest, but, ultimately it is solidarity that prevails in the tragic proceedings. Faith clashes with realism and both image and message resonate the struggle.
