Two Cents Worth of Hope

Due soldi di speranza

Directed by Renato Castellani
Italy, 1952


The story concerns the romance between Carmela and Antonio. Faced with the hostility of their parents, they symbolically shed themselves of all responsibilities to others in a climactic act of stark-naked bravado.
