The Passion of Anna Magnani


Genre: Bios

Synopsis: A portrait of the great Italian actress, emblem of neo-realism and icon of world cinema: gunned down by Nazis in Rome, Open City, she brought the lacerations of war to the eyes of the world and became the symbol of a new concept of cinema that hit the streets to bring reality to light. Anna was unique. She revolutionized the way women were portrayed in the movies. As a woman, she embodied a model that was different from all the leading ladies who had come before her, as well as those that would follow. She is the icon of Italianness and the true woman, in contrast to false models conjured up by male desire. “La Magnani” used her enormous acting skills to bolster the realism of passions and feelings, and inspired some of the greatest directors in Europe.
