Anna Magnani stars with Massimo Girotti (Ossessione) in a comedy directed by Mario Camerini about a poor Roman housewife who inadvertently sabotages her husband’s attempts to make a dishonest living—a film in which Magnani is said to have adapted some of the lively comedy of her stage revues to the context of neorealism. Also known as Woman Trouble (1948).
