Released in Italy in 1946, OUTCRY was hailed as one of the classics of the Italian cinema, ranked along with Roberto Rossellini's OPEN CITY (1946) and PAISAN (1948). The story concerns the exploitation of a group of peasants outside of Milan in Lombardy, where Duse, a deserter from the

army, is hiding out. Duse soon becomes involved with a partisan leader's daughter (Padovani) and then with the wealthy Parvo. The film's climax occurs when the Fascists murder a pair of hostages--a priest (played by cowriter Lizzani) and a Communist--while the crowd of peasants rebels. The

masterful editing and director Vergano's stark, neo-realist style brought this picture deserved praise; however, it seems to have been forgotten today, overshadowed by Rossellini's great successes. Vergano was kept from making films for a time while he served a prison sentence as a result of his

involvement in a revolutionary movement. (In Italian; English subtitles.)
