Anna

Alberto Lattuada / IT, FR, 1951 / 107 min.

What seems like a melodrama is in fact a subtle exploration of the psyche of a woman going her own way: Anna, with a starring role for Silvana Mangano, is Alberto Lattuada’s sophisticated interpretation of a love story in the style of a film noir.

Sometimes, Alberto Lattuada chose melodrama as a way of weaving a modern message through his films. In Anna, Silvana Mangano plays a woman who wants to become a nun. Shortly before her investiture – she is working as a nurse in a hospital – her former lover Andrea (Raf Vallone) is brought in, seriously injured.
