Lost without a message to sledgehammer home, Kramer turned to bombastic comedy with this World War II yarn.

There's not one affecting, surprising or spontaneous moment in the picture.

An amusing WW II story.

Quinn, as always, is the highlight in this fine Stanley Kramer production.

Jul 27, 2006 | Rating: 4/5

The sort of film you usually fall asleep in front of on a Sunday afternoon -- later to wish you'd stayed awake for the outcome.

Audience Reviews for The Secret of Santa Vittoria


A charming cast invigorates this predictable tale of small town Italian mountain villagers outwitting the mean old greedy Nazis at the end of WWll, hiding a lot of wine that the Krauts want to appropriate. Quinn, Magnani, and Giannini shine.
