“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.

"I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."
Who Framed Roger Rabbit, 1988
