Darkness on the edge of town
6 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Lizzani reportedly said that the initial screenplay was based on the rape and murder of a little girl.The new re-written screenplay is not really satisfying :for instance the final speech for the defense is so unconvincing that the writers felt compelled to have the true criminals found and arrested at the same time.

On the plus side,there's a depiction of the wrong side of the town ,in the grand tradition of Neorealism ,and a sensational Giuletta Masina who steals every scene she is in ;there's an interesting character:the old man who plays " the saw" and whom the lawyer humiliates in public (and involuntary causes his death); a lawyer ,who ,unlike the ones you see in today's movies is not always irreproachable,even though he ultimately redeems himself.
