Audience Reviews for Woman of Straw

Gina Lollobrigida is a woman torn between greed and compassion in this mildly compelling 'thriller' from British director Basil Deardon. If you can withstand the slow start the payoff at the end is... well... modest.

Somewhat overwrought sudser is aided by gorgeous location filming and a superior cast. Ralph Richardson is wonderful as the old codger, Gina full of fire and Sean Connery suave and silky in an atypical role. Not great cinema but fun in a melodramatic way.
