Storyline

Napoli, gli inizi del secolo. Assunta Spina è una bella popolana, padrona di una stireria ed ha per amante Michele, macellaio, che, in un accesso di gelosia, la sfregia. Viene arrestato e condannato a due anni, nonostante i tentativi della donna di salvarlo, giurando al processo di essere stata colpita da un altra persona. In tribunale, viene avvicinata da un cancelliere che si offre di aiutarla per far restare Michele a Napoli. La donna comprende le reali intenzione dell'uomo e rifiuta, ma pensando alla lontananza del suo amato, accetta. Riesce così ad incontrare >Michele ogni giorno, ma diventa anche l'amante del cancelliere. Una notte, mentre aspetta il cancelliere, che vorrebbe troncare la relazione, torna Michele, appena uscito di prigione. Quando questi scopre la verità, afferra un coltello ed uccide il rivale, dileguandosi. Quando arrivano gli agenti, Assunta dichiara di esser stata lei ad uccidere ed affronta la prigione.

La Magnani
7 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Like all the Grandes Dames ,La Magnani makes herself wait since she does not appear during the first fourteen minutes.For a movie which lasts about 75 minutes it's much!As soon as she is on the screen she mesmerizes the viewer.Even in an average film like this one,with a relatively mediocre screenplay ,La Magnani shines.

She's cast as a semi-whore the people around are always putting down (a lady says: "I do not want to speak ill of her but ....).Her presence in the church is considered a sacrilege (there's the same scene in another Magnani movie :"Volcano" ).All her lovers -when she meets a sincere young man who wants to marry her it's too late- are brutes or cowards .It looks like a blueprint for what will be fully achieved in Pasolini's masterful "Mamma Roma"

Without La Magnani,this film would be forgotten.
