Six stories set during the liberation of Italy at the end of World War II, taking place as the Allies moved north, from Sicily to the Po Valley. Rossellini's film is unusual in that it relies on non-actors to tell the story of the Allies advance through Italy. The first segment takes place in Sicily where an American G.I. meets a Sicilian girl during the Allied landing. In the last segment, the Allies have advanced to the Po valley. Italian partisans and OSS commandos engage with retreating German forces in the marshlands surrounding the Po river. The Germans retalitate by executing all the inhabitants of a nearby village

Roma, cittá aperta Rome ville ouverte by Roberto Rossellini ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in French and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : Témoignage brut et sans concession de la résistance du peuple romain face à l'occupant allemand, Rome ville ouverte est animé d'un souci d'authenticité rarement atteint par le septième art. S'inspirant de faits réels, tourné à chaud dans un style documentaire débarrassé des oripeaux mélodramatiques traditionnels, le chef-d'œuvre de Rossellini est considéré à juste titre comme le premier film "néo-réaliste", ouvrant la voie à un des courants majeurs du cinéma mondial
