    The five episodes (there were seven in the original Italian release) put the full range of Napoli's humanity on display, showcasing the city and its people for their grit, their wit and their infinite charm. Two performances in particular are worth the price of admission, those of Silvana Mangano as a prostitute gone straight, and screenwriter and director Vittoria de Sica himself as an unlucky, inveterate gambler.
