IL GENERALE DELLA ROVERE

During the German occupation of Milan in WWII, a petty Italian thief and con man (Vittorio De Sica) is arrested by the Gestapo and forced to spy for them in prison—impersonating a general in order to root out anti-fascist resistance fighters there. Winner of the Golden Lion (top prize) at the 1959 Venice Film Festival and one of Rossellini’s best films. Subtitles. Blu-ray. 140 min.
