They say Visconti or Rossellini could have pulled the thing off;and indeed ,"tradita" looks like a poor man's "Vanina Vanini" or "Senso" .Directed by Mario Bonnard,it looks like Harlequin romance.The occupation of Italy by Austria circa 1915 provides the screenwriters with a pretext to show mawkish love stories , revenge and lots of betrayals.The well-known story of the two brothers ,one is Abel (he fights for his homeland),the other Cain (he befriends the nasty Austrians)is given such an incredible treatment you won't take it seriously one single minute :the final unexpected twist defies common sense.
Two French actors were part of the cast:Pierre Cressoy fell into oblivion,but the other was none other than Brigitte Bardot:who could have believed ,by looking at her as a virtuous good girl , that she would become two years later France's greatest sex symbol of all time? In French ,BB is dubbed (one can wonder why)by the same silly voice which also dubbed Romy Schneider in the French version of her early films ("Sissi","Christine").
