  1. Rome, Open City is one of my favourite European films. It plays almost like a documentary, and the performance from Anna Magnani is unforgettable.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Personally, I think Germany Year Zero is the crown jewel of his three great 40’s war films, but yeah they are all great. Prior to Viva l’Italia (Rossellini’s personal favorite of his films), I viewed Journey to Italy as his crowning achievement altogether. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
