Extremely moody melodrama(told mostly in flashback)has young war vet struggling to adjust to civilian life, bringing over Italian bride to live with him and his parents. But trouble begins almost immediately, mostly because the kid's mom is a neurotic mess. Film takes an ETERNITY setting up it's story(which is pretty basic)and John Ericson is terribly miscast in the leading role(when he tries for seriousness, this well-scrubbed youth only looks petulant and selfish). Rod Steiger fans might want to take a look; this was his first movie, and he's very good as a psychiatrist.
