Storyline

When peasant girl Nives is deserted by smuggler Gino Lodi, she betrays him to the police. Police officer Enzo Cinti, who loves Nives, traces her to the Po River cane-fields, where she is working as a cutter to support herself and an infant son, and warns her that Gino has escaped from prison and is seeking revenge. She rejects his offer to protect her. Gino finds Nives, mourning the drowning death of their son. He surrenders himself to the police and then walks at Nives' side in the funeral procession.

River Girl or Women of the River
5 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film as a very young girl and remember that it made a very lasting memory. I so much would like to see it on video to be able to view it once again. Sophia Loren was and is an extraordinary women. I hope she will continue making movies as she is a joy to watch.
