Ai margini della metropoli
- 1h 36m
A loose screenplay, but haunting atmospherics
This film reminds me of many British films showing the seamy side of life, with insecurities, poverty and being disadvantaged all leading to some inevitable tragedy. Most actors are solid here, except for a miscast Marina Berti. The story, however, is with a bit of gaping holes that the screenplay does nothing to cover up. All that said, there's a tinge of horror to the film just because of the camerawork and the shooting locales and sets. That the horror of a crime engendered because of poverty can weigh so heavy on the viewer is a feat achieved by only a very few director-cameraperson combos.
