Movie Info

In this drama, a bereaved American mother, distraught over the suicide of her son, attempts to find meaning in her now empty life by helping those less fortunate than herself. She is assisted by a communist who gets her in touch with needy people. When she assists a young criminal fleeing the cops, her husband thinks she has gone over the edge and has her committed. In the gray confines of the asylum, the woman sits in utter silence.

Audience Reviews for Europa '51


Despite its noble intentions, this preachy film was clearly made as a vehicle for Rossellini's marxist discourse - and not only it relies on a contrived premise that is hard to buy but also has a very heavy-handed execution, with a clumsy dialogue and a terrible lack of subtlety.
