Storyline

A rowdy woman is so forceful that she outdoes her husband in a loud cry against speculators who refuse poor people entrance to a block of new apartments, built after WW2. Without noticing it, she starts a people's movement, and leads a march to the capital. She returns to her village a winner, an honourable MP. Yet, she is still the same simple, fiery woman, able to get in a hair-pulling brawl with the local barmaid for the affection of her man. Written by Artemis-9

A nobody woman becomes an MP, or the story of post-war Italy.
28 January 1999 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

After WW2, the people in the street (actually, for there was no housing available) suffered a lot, and so did Angelina and her family, and her neighbours. In 1947, in a realistic setting, Zampa filmed her loved actress, Anna Magnani with so much affection that you can feel it. B&W drama, with moments of inescapable comic relief, will have you routing for the rowdy woman with so few education, and so much humanity, and passion, in her... ***** performance, and a sample of what a mature sexy Latino woman looked like then.
