La ciociara (1960, De Sica) Fleeing to her native South from Rome and Allied bombing, Sophia Loren and daughter Eleonora Brown find friendship with local intellectual Jean-Paul Belmondo, but which is worse?: fleeing Germans or advancing French colonial troops, the Moroccan Goumiers? Twenty-six-year-old Loren won both the Cannes Best Actress award and an Oscar — the first ever given for a foreign language performance. Adapted from a novel by Alberto Moravia, based on actual events. Approx. 100 min. 35mm.
