Six separate stories portraying various events taking place between the Allied landings in Sicily in 1943 and the Liberation in 1945. The film explores the contacts and often complex relationships between American forces and the Italian population. Newsreel footage and voiceover narration links the six episodes and locations which follow the trajectory of the Allied campaign in Italy. Rossellini presents the heart-rending characters and circumstances in long takes and with the minimum of close-ups, dispassionately and without attempting to direct audience emotions. The tragic situations and events are presented without judgement to leave viewers to extract subtle meaning for themselves. Arguably the supreme achievement of the Neorealist movement, its innovations in narrative structure and its unexpected climaxes resemble a modern collection of short stories.
