Storyline

Based on an actual incident, this is the story of five girls (told in a slow beginning) who are among the 200 women who answer a want ad for a modest secretarial position one rainy morning in Rome in 1951. They crowd and push their way into the old building and fight their way up the stairs to await an interview, only to be told there is not enough time to interview all. A scuffle breaks out and the stairway collapses sending many of them hurtling down in a mass of bodies amid brick and mortar. Among them are the well-born wife of a poor artist;, a streetwalker making an attempt to change her life; an unhappy servant girl; and the desperate wife of an unemployed factory worker. How the event changes or fails to change their lives is told. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

classic italian neo-realistic film.
5 April 2001 | by (palm bay,florida,u.s.a.) – See all my reviews

i have seen both italien and english versions of this motion picture, and both are very good. however as good as the dubbing may be in this film, the original language version with subtitles is far better. based on a true story, that happened in rome after world war 2, director desantis gets every bit of emotion and pathos out of his performers. lucia bose, raf vallone, massimo girotti, and lea padovani lead an all star italien cast in a drama about an add in the paper for a typist. one job and about 100 women show up for it. while waiting on the staircase to be interviewed, the staircase collapses with many of the women buried beneath the rubble. it is from this point on that we follow the stories of a select few and the despair and tribulations that they had. the acting is superb, the musical score perfect for this type of film. in my opinion. it is guiseppe desantis best film. at this time it is not available on vhs or dvd in the usa. hopefully in the near future it will be, so that many of the film enthusiasts like myself can view it and enjoy it as much as i have. truly a lost title and a gem. respectfully submitted joe rinando.
