Perhaps the most unjustly neglected of Luchino Visconti's early films is this hilarious 1951 comedy.

A great introduction to the work of Anna Magnani and Italian neorealist director Luchino Visconti. The dialogue overlaps and everyone speaks quickly, so in all honesty it's a challenge to watch in Italian with English subtitles. But it's also rewarding.

... this is about ruthless competition to break into show business with Anna Magnani as the working-class woman turned aggressive stage mother ...

In addition to being a beautifully told story, Bellissima is the first honest self-portrait of the cinema.
