Synopsis

Roberto Rossellini’s neo-realistic follow-up to his breakout Rome, Open City is the ambitious, enormously moving Paisan, which consists of six episodes set during the liberation of Italy at the end of World War II and taking place across the country from Sicily to the northern Po valley. Receiving an Oscar nomination for its screenplay, co-penned by the young Federico Fellini, Paisan centres on the interaction between the Allied Forces and Italian people at the end of the war.
