Il delitto di Giovanni Episcopo

Alberto Lattuada / IT, 1947 / 85 min.

This seldom-screened film from Albert Lattuada’s neo-realist period is an adaptation of Gabriele d’Annunzio’s novella of the same title. A simple clerk falls under the spell of a dissipated adventurer and commits a murder. The first of four Lattuada films on which Federico Fellini was co-screenwriter.
