One of the true landmarks of film history, Rome, Open City is a bracing account of the Nazi occupation and the lives of those in the city’s underground resistance—including Pina, played by Magnani in her breakthrough role. (113 mins., 4K DCP) Featuring stories by Federico Fellini and Jean Cocteau, the anthology film L’Amore stars Magnani first as an unbalanced peasant woman who believes she is the Virgin Mary after being raped, and then as a spurned lover desperately trying to salvage her relationship over the phone (an adaptation of Cocteau’s La voix humaine). (69 mins., 35mm)
