Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of Rossellini's neo-realistic films, Paisan received an Oscar nomination for its screenplay, co-penned by the young Fellini and others, and centering on the interaction between the Allied Forces and Italian people at the end of WWII."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Love, friendship and camaraderie take root but dont blossom, though hope remains that conditions will be more fertile in just a few months."
‑ Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis
"this remarkable film communicates how the war in Italy actually took place on a very personal level"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Chillingly blunt, doggedly unsentimental, emotionally overwhelming"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Has a passion, unlike a newsreel, that resonates and its authenticity as an important document of history cannot be denied."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"effectively maintains the rough-hewn, in-the-streets feel of neorealism, and in its best moments it feels like something captured, rather than something produced"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Visually creative, emotionally involving look at the turbulent transition to liberated Italy in 1945."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
