Plot and outline
A husband kills his wife's ex-boyfriend, who was blackmailing her. He flees to America, but is sent back to Italy to stand trial. The only way he can be set free is if his wife confesses to adultery – so the murder can be considered a crime of passion – but this estranges her from her family. Starring Amedeo Nazzari and actress of Greek origin Yvonne Sanson. Maligned by critics because it did not conform to precepts of neorealism, this did not prevent its unexpected box office success.
Amedeo Nazzari: Guglielmo
Yvonne Sanson: Rosa
Aldo Nicodemi: Emilio
Teresa Franchini: Anna Aniello, mother of Guglielmo
