Black and white films used to prevent us several times from actually noticing the underlying notes.The incredible fact is..Terra Trema must be one of the openly,politically charged emeralds of film-making.The fishermen are nothing more but pawns of the system,the all-seeing machine.

I would have enjoyed this film a lot more if it were shorter. the story was well-conceived, the acting was convincing (especially for non-actors), and certain elements of dialogue and cinematography were very touching and poetic. the pacing, however, was very slow and the overall film is just very depressing. I understand how that contributes to Visconti's neorealist vision, but I think it just dragged on a bit too long.

"La Terra trema" is director Luchino Visconti at his very best.

True vision of real life of real Scilian fishermen.

It's a rather long and arduous film but it provides great insight into the poor lives of the fishermen. It's so evocative, it made me wanna join Marxism. Although, I am not sure what that even means.

One of the biggest exponents of the italian neorealism,being surpassed only by Bicycle Thieves,in the same year.

Very evocative movie especially considering that none of the cast are professional actors. Good story. Great insight into a society we normally don't see. A very honest film.
