Mamma Roma

Italy, Italian, 106 mins

  • Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini
  • Writer: Pier Paolo Pasolini
  • Producer: Alfredo Bini

CGiii Comment

Pasolini's second film and a vast improvement on his first, Accattone.

The themes are similar, the acting is better...but, it's the writing...too many loose and frayed ends.

There is a great story here...but, by the end, it simply falls apart - leaving you quite cold.

The(ir) Blurb...

After many years working in the streets of Roma, the middle-age whore Mamma Roma (Anna Magnani) saves money to buy an upper class apartment, a fruit stand and retires from the prostitution. She brings her teenage son Ettore (Ettore Garofolo), who was raised alone in the country, to live with her, and Ettore becomes her pride and joy. However, the boy that does not want to study or work, joins to idle friends, has a crush on a bitch, and Mamma Roma uses her best but limited efforts to straight Ettore and make him an honest man. However, her past haunts her with tragic consequences.
