I saw this film 30 years or more at a university screening. It's probably never been released on videotape and may never be on DVD. I remember it as an affecting drama of a relationship/affair between an Italian girl and an afro-American GI (Kitzmiller). Both characters are sympathetic, with the Italian girl eventual drawn into prostitution by the difficult conditions of a receding World War II. Yet it is those conditions, with the Americans now an occuppying force in Italy, that bring the two together in a way probably impossible but for war. This film could be, I suppose, "neo-realist," and would be nice to "revisit" again to confirm my initial good impression of it.
