Italian version of The Postman Always Rings Twice. - Ossessione review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
27/11/2012

Visconti's dirty, baleful proto-neorealist classic on the spiritual corrosiveness of poverty. Represents a true cinematic leap forward. Makes the American crime dramas of the period look like the work of the Children's Film Foundation.
