    Just as he did with ‘La Dolce Vita’, Giovanni Galavotti does a great job of condensing a significant film into a satisfying bite-size read.

    This gut-wrenching picture has to be seen before the economy of the writing in the Easy Reader version can be fully appreciated. In ‘Le Italiane’ Roberto Gamberini has Anna Magnani say this about the scene where Pina (the character she plays in ‘Roma città aperta’) gets shot in the back by a German soldier: “Doveva durare di più, quella scena. Dovevo correre più a lungo. Poi sono caduta. E lì Roberto, Roberto Rossellini, ha fatto il miracolo, e ha reso quella caduta una delle scene più famose del cinema.” But would Magnani really have said it? There was no room for sentiment here; Pina got shot, she fell and she was dead. Hollywood would have had close ups, violins and last words. Rossellini knew better. So did Gavalotti.
    Bravo e grazie, Giovanni!

    I enjoyed the story, and the subject, found it easy to read, but wished there had been more of it.
    Perhaps I shall have to find the film, to watch.
