Summary
"This book is an invaluable introduction to one of the most influential of film movements. Exploring the origins and evolution of Neorealism, particularly the effects of the Second World War, as well as its politics and style, this volume examines the portrayal of the city and the legacy of filmmakers such as Robet Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica and Luchina Visconti. Films studied include Rome, Open City (1945), Bicycle Thieves (1948), Journey to Italy (1953) and The Nights of Cabiria (1957)."--BOOK JACKET
