Newly restored version of Roberto Rossellini's closing part of his celebrated War Trilogy. Amidst the ruins of Berlin in the immediate post-war years a young boy, Edmund, attempts to support his family. This devastating portrait of an obliterated post-war Europe remains one of the most affecting films in the history of cinema.
This new DVD edition includes L'Amore (1948), Rossellini's two-part anthology film which proved hugely controversial on its original release. The first part was co-scripted by Rossellini and Federico Fellini and stars Fellini as 'Saint Joseph', who villainously impregnates 'Nanni'(Anna Magnani), a disturbed peasant who believes herself to be the Virgin Mary. The second part is based on Jean Cocteau's play La voix humaine.
