Fiction, Italy, 1948, DCP (35mm)

With Anna Magnani, Federico Fellini, Peparuolo, Amelia Robert

Love is made up of two parts. The first, A Human Voice, is based on a play by Jean Cocteau and was made in 1947, before Germany Year Zero and the second part, The Miracle in April 1948. In both films, Anna Magnani plays a woman who loves without being loved in return. [...] Watching A Human Voice and reflecting on what we see, we have to ask ourselves: what is the thing we actually define as love? [...] Love is an ephemeral phenomenon; this is what Rossellini has shown us. [...] In The Miracle, Rossellini tells the story of a woman who the residents of a village believe to be feebleminded and who, for this reason, leads her life far away from the others. One sunny day, she meets a bearded man (Federico Fellini), and thinks he is Saint Joseph. [...] The Miracle has been accused by the Church of being a parody of the Immaculate Conception.
