What the whole thing comes down to is a stunningly colorful show, in the middle of which looms Miss Magnani.

It's an escapist theatrical comedy.

This superbly crafted masterpiece about life and art, with a charismatic performance from the great Anna Magnani as a temperamental actress, was made by Jean Renoir after returning to France from a decade in the U.S. and filming The River in India.
