La ciociara (1960) Title.jpg

English title: Two Women

Director

Vittorio De Sica

Storyline

Cesira, a poor widow, together with her beautiful and naive thirteen-year-old daughter Rosetta, try to survive in the capital during the world war. While the German army prepares to enter Rome, the defenseless couple, to escape the bombing, flees and finds refuge with her daughter in Sant'Eufemia, her country of origin. There, they have to witness other tragic events, because the peace is again disturbed by the landing of the Americans at Anzio in January 1944 and the situation tended to worsen more and more, until the two women, finally walking towards the capital, are surrounded by a group of Moroccan allied soldiers.
