Generally considered to be the first film of the Italian neorealist movement, Visconti’s debut feature is also one of the first adaptations of James M. Cain’s noir novel The Postman Always Rings Twice (1934). In the Po Valley of northern Italy, a hunky vagabond (Massimo Girotti) hooks up with an ex-prostitute (Clara Calamai) who’ll do just about anything to get away from her horrible husband and the rundown hotel where they live. (140 mins., DCP)
