Set during WWII, the film is a drama of the Italian resistance, with all the usual clichéd characters in attendance. The central character, a bombed-out gamine who falls in love with an Italian partisan, is played by Lucia Bose, who earned a great deal of praise for her performance. Most of the film deals with the culture-clash between the citified resistance fighters and their rural hosts. (AllMovie)

(de) wrote: My heart just fell apart for Kaja, the main character. She got treated terribly, but I can also see where her husband's annoyance was coming from and it wasn't Kaja. The characterization was a bit obvious, so it was more of a light-hearted movie, but still realistic. It shows the cold spectrum of emotion and shows somewhat where it comes from in Kaja's husband's case, but not the other wife's case. This is a movie that shows how kindness and patience could be mistaken for a weakness. I still feel like there wasn't much resolved when it came to the children. Now for the other couple, I'm a bit more harsh on the wife, but then again it's neither one's fault usually, but it was nice to see her warm up a bit. I can recognize her cold sense of humor, but I would've liked to see how that developed...maybe I missed some hints..

(mx) wrote: Great cast riddled with bad script and bland characters. A very straight forward, safe thriller with no surprises and plenty of lost opportunities within the story.

(de) wrote: I am an avid fan of the actors in this version of Stokers novel but I am afraid there were just too many liberties taken with the original for me to really enjoy it. Marc Warren can do creepy really well, Sophie Miles is a fine actress and David Suchet is excellent but not in this I'm afraid. The BBC did an excellent dramatisation in 1977 with Louis Jordan as the Count, but here they failed and by a long way. If you are not as precious about the original novel as I am then there may be much to enjoy here(the BBC do Victorian like no one else) but don't expect much Stoker. I give it 40% bcause I like the above named actors so much.
