    Release Date:

    Based on the true story of Don Morosi, a priest and Resistance worker shot by the Germans in wartime Rome, Roberto Rossellini`s first feature after the Mussolini era has become synonymous with Italian neo-realism. Shot on the locations where the events actually happened, using hand-held cameras, film bought from street photographers, and a largely non-professional cast, Rome, Open City still retains its remarkable immediacy, its sense of life captured as it happens.

    Special Features:
    Documentary on the making of the film `The Children of Rome Open City` (47 mins).

    Directed By:
    Roberto Rossellini

    Written By:

    Nando Bruno
