Undistinguished Italia soaper.
3 November 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Somebody liked this one well enough to bring it out in three Paris theaters sixty years after it's production.

First film by the writer-director of ADUA & HER COMPANIONS, it follows young mountain village girl Irene Galter, sent by her priest to be a servant in Rome with all the women's magazine calamities that might be expected.

The realist tradition is evident in the use of real streets, apartments or the local the dance hall as settings but the story is instantly predictable. It's only in the supportive society of the maids that the film offers something unfamiliar.

The technical work is excellent with master editor De Roma on hand. Gabriele Ferzetti and Paolo Stoppa are the familiar faces mixed with the unknowns.
