Movie Info

Il Sacco di Roma (The Sack of Rome) delivers what its title promises. The film is set in 1527, the year of the Spanish invasion of Rome. Before the story gets down to business -- e.g. the sacking and humiliation of the Eternal City -- the plot concentrates on the rivalry between two noble families. The son of one family falls in love with the daughter of the other, but the results are less tragic than in Romeo and Juliet. Somehow, the film finds time for a comic interlude involving amorous sculptor Benevenuto Cellini. Anna Maria Bugliari, Miss Italy of 1953, is arbitrarily inserted into the proceedings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
