Restored and relased on DVD in Italy last year, Giuseppe de Santis' Roma ore 11 is an unknown masterpiece of the late Neorealism. Augusto Genina made another film based on the same tragic accident, Tre storie proibite. Impressive beauty of Massimo Girotti, Raf Vallone, Lucia Bosè and Carla del Poggio in a choral film. Vallone's real life wife, Elena Varzi plays another role: a pregnant secretary.
