“Mamma Roma” is a mix of formal audacity, unexpected candour and heart-breaking compassion, the result is a work of disarming beauty.

Anna Magnani is the only professional actress, but her charismatic and incisive acting perfectly balances the lack of professional actors.

Pasolini uses Christian symbolism as a contrast with the degradation of life on the street, accompaning scenes with Vivaldi’s pieces and recalling Mantegna’s painting.

"Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."
Chinatown, 1974
