It Was Night in Rome (Era notte a Roma)
In keeping with his previous film Generale Della Rovere, filmmaker Robert Rossellini pursues a wartime theme in his 145-minute "personal epic" Era Notte a Roma. The story concerns three Allied POWS, who escape from their camp and hide out in Rome. The trio is given shelter by a beautiful young woman. With something tangible to fight over, the three prisoners' national chauvinism (one is Russian, one English, one American) simmers to a boil. For reasons which remain obscure, Era Notte a Roma was never given a widespread American release. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stylishly filmed in black-and-white, and effectively mixes together neorealism, film noir and didactic lessons in patriotism."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
