Originally Il Sole Sorge Ancora, Outcry is a neorealist tribute to the Italian resistance fighters of World War II. The scene is the tiny village of Lombardy, just outside Milan. The villagers have suffered four years of humiliation and exploitation at the hands of the fascists. But when a priest and a communist hostage are executed by pro-Nazi troops, the townsfolk join the resistance in revolting against their oppressors. Woven throughout this basic storyline are the exploits of Army deserter Vittorio Duse, who juggles with the affections of the daughter (Lea Padovani) of the partisan leader and a woman of wealth (Elli Parvo). Some observers have suggested that Outcry director Aldo Vergano might have become the pre-eminent Italian neorealist director had his career not been curtailed by a prison term; others have noted that Vergano's films, while spirited and sincere, pale in comparison to the more famous efforts of DeSica and Rosselini. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
