Una Giornata Particolare

A Special Day

(Italy/Canada, 1977, 108 minutes)

In 1938, on the day Hitler visits Rome, a wife and mother of six left home alone makes the acquaintance of the handsome bachelor living across the courtyard. Quiet, subtly political melodrama; for all intents and purposes a two-hander that eschews any theatrical bent and effectively casts its stars against type.
