|A Dostoyevsky tale of a lonely man’s love for a woman who despairs waiting for her betrothed to return after a year’s absence. Luchino Visconti creates a claustrophobic atmosphere, as he plumbs the depths of individual feelings divorced from any socio-political statement. Marcello Mastroianni and Maria Schell are remarkable as the man and woman.|
