Set during WWII, the film is a drama of the Italian resistance, with all the usual clichd 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.(Here

cripted by Eriprando Visconti, nephew of Lucino Visconti, Gli Sbandati transports its viewers to a provincial Italian town on the verge of a massive socio-political transformation. The year is 1943, a few days after the Italian government has accepted Eisenhower's armistice proposal. Lucia (Lucia Bose), a poor girl who has fallen in love with the wealthy looker Andrea (Jean-Pierre Mocky), is torn between helping a group of Italian soldiers on the run and a promising future with the man of her dreams. Surrounded by Andrea's friends and family however who openly support the Fascists Lucia senses that sooner rather than later she will have to part ways with her lover - and when Contessa Luisa (Isa Miranda), Andrea's mother, encourages her son to leave Italy behind and seek happiness in neutral Switzerland Lucia's world collapses with a bang.

Beautifully photographed and openly critical of Italian bourgeois culture Gli Sbandati was Maselli's first feature film. In 1955 the picture won the coveted "Best New Director" award at the Venice Film Festival instantaneously placing Maselli amongst Italy's best. In the following years the young writer-director would passionately critique Italy's political elite and complete his most acclaimed work Gli Indifferenti a.k.a A Time of Indifference (1964). (Here

Northern Italy, near Milan, 1943. In order to escape the bombings of the Second World War, Contessa Luisa, her son Andrea, grandson Carl and Ferruccio, a family friend, search for shelter in a villa close to Milan. The three boys try to pass the time in the best way they can. Only Carlo realizes the tragedy of the situation. The group is soon joined by Lucia, a woman who also seeks refuge and a group of soldiers, escaping from the Germans. Andrea hosts them in the villa during his mothers absence, and soon falls in love with Lucia. But the brave gesture of Andrea provokes Ferruccio: he informs the Germans about what is happening in the villa. The soldiers decide to escape to the mountains using a truck, also taking Lucia, Carlo and Andrea. The mother returns just before their departure, and Andrea, influenced by his mother, refuses to follow his friends. He plans to escape to Switzerland instead. While he sits in the car to begin his journey, he hears the gunshots that are fired on the truck, killing Lucia.(Here

MORTE DI UN AMICO ("Death of a Friend") of Franco Rossi, from a screenplay by Pier Paolo Pasolini and others, reveals the strong hand Pasolini in its depiction of life at the geographical, social, economic, and moral edge of Rome. The two heroes (played by Gianni Garko and Spiros Focas) are pimps, like the protagonist of Pasolini's own ACCATTONE. The relationship between Aldo and Bruno and the bourgeois society which rejects them is a complex one. The pimps are both callous and caring; their prostitutes are by turn vindictive and generous. MORTE DI UN AMICO is an unsettling, powerful, and ultimately very moving film from that fertile period of Italian cinema that brought us L'AVVENTURA, ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, ACCATTONE, and LA DOLCE VITA. (IMDB)

An intentionally shocking drama about the down, often violent side of existence on the fringe, this story by Franco Rossi follows the same themes and attitudes found in the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini. Aldo (Gianni Garko) and Bruno (Spiros Fokas) grew up as close friends in the same neighborhood in Rome but as they got older they drifted apart. Aldo has turned to petty crime and his girlfriend, a hooker, is actually supporting him. Bruno is introduced back into the life of his friend though he himself is not a part of the shady, destructive world that surrounds Aldo. Ultimately, Bruno cannot resist the effect of Aldo and his low-life friends, leading to a few wrong decisions and eventual tragedy. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi (Here)
When Morte di Un Amico was first released in Italy in 1959 the Italian Committee for the Theatrical Review of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities rated the film not suitable for viewing because it included several immoral scenes which were considered to be offensive to public decency. On a second review by the Committee, the film was rated not suitable for children under 16 on the proviso that the scene in which Alde and Lea hug each other in bed is removed. The official document number is: 30584. It was signed on 30 November 1959 by Minister Domenico Magr.(WIKI)
Morte di un amico, full movie - The film chronicles the friendship between two young people from the suburbs of Rome: the well-meaning but weak Aldo and Bruno amoral and selfish dragging his friend pimping and homicide. You can watch Morte di un amico online on video-on-demand services (Netflix, HBO Now), pay-TV or movie theaters with original audio in Italian. This film has been premiered in theaters in 1959 (Movies 1959). The DVD and Blu-Ray edition of full movie was sold some time after its official release in theaters.(Here)

Durante la festa la duchessa si copre di ridicolo per le inevitabili gaffe, ma scopre che il baronetto e suo padre sono in realt degli impostori. Il fidanzamento va in fumo e la questione finisce in tribunale dove, pi per i suoi modi spregiudicati che per le capacit oratorie dell'avvocato, la signora riesce ad avere ragione. La giovane nipote, stanca di ogni velleit aristocratica, torna al suo primo amore, un onesto ragazzo figlio di un pasticciere.(WIKI)
