Eclipse 1949: Catene

This is very cute. It’s like an anti-neorealism movie? But not quite? It’s a melodrama, and it’s fun.

The first half of this movie was amazeballs great. But then… it really drags?

It picks up again at the end, with a totally over-the-top court scene. Fantastic.

Chains. Raffaello Matarazzo. 1949.
