Directed by Alberto Lattuada
Anna is a nun on the
verge of taking her last vows, whose sinful life as a nightclub entertainer, passion for
one man and drive to marry another haunt her. Her old feelings are renewed when her former
fiancee is brought to the hospital where she now serves as a nurse after a serious
accident. A first-rate performance by Silvana Mangano dominates this powerful drama about
the conflict between the flesh and the spirit. With Vittorio Gassman and Raf Vallone.
Italian with English subtitles. 111 minutes.
