Directed by Roberto Rossellini
Rossellini's last and darkest film with Ingrid Bergman
shows a marriage stumbling across lines of suspicion, mistrust and fear. The
husband of the story attempts blackmailing his wife in an effort to force
her into a confession. She tolerates this blackmail because of an abstract
guilt over her adulterous actions. Rossellini's visual motifs, darkness and
shadows, create the moral muddle through which the characters move. Filmed
in English. 84 minutes.
