I bambini ci guardano (1944, De Sica) As five-year- old Luciano de Ambrosis strides ahead of his mother through a park to the Punch and Judy show, the multiple betrayals are about to begin, topped by a defiant walk down the world’s seemingly most endless corridor. An illicit love affair seen totally through the eyes of a child, this was De Sica’s first serious film and first major collaboration with Zavattini — and a critical change in his art and life. Approx. 84 min. 35mm.
