This is melodrama.The whole melodrama.Nothing but melodrama.Gianna Maria Canale -who,generally plays the treacherous beauty in peplums or swashbucklers-,suffers ,suffers, suffers:victim of her past,chased out by her virtuous hubby,estranged from her beloved son,persecuted by her ex-lover,etc.Nothing special but aficionados of the genre can have a look.
Riccardo Freda who tackled a lot of styles from the horror movie to the spy thriller would come back to melodrama in the sixties,when he adapted for the screen famous novels from the ninetieth century such as "Roger la Honte" and "Les deux orphelines" (which DW Griffith had already filmed as "orphans of the storm" in the silent era.
