A slow-paced but oddly gripping World War II drama (1965) about a truckload of bitter prostitutes (including Anna Karina, Lea Massari, and Marie Laforet) being transported across occupied Greece and delivered to Italian regiments along the way. Italian director Valerio Zurlini occasionally strays into the sort of moral allegory that Rod Serling made his own, yet the arduous journey over the mountains of northern Greece is so realistic and the characters are so finely shaded that you might not mind the occasionally leaden soul-searching. 120 min.
