Antonio Pietrangeli – Il sole negli occhi aka Empty Eyes (1953)

Miseries, grandeur, daily life of Celestina, orphaned country girl who arrives in Rome to be a maid, at first in a well-to-do houshold, then for a couple of loving retirees, then in a wealthy family. She falls in love with a plumber, gets pregnant, attempts suicide, then decides to survive for the child that will come.
The first film by scriptwriter A. Pietrangeli (1919-68), and the beginning of a rich gallery of female characters, which is perhaps his greatest title of glory.Despite its intimate key, it is considered one of the last examples of neo-realism.
One of its virtues is the absence of a thesis. Pietrangeli had intended to create a character to be typified gradually and to be followed in its evolution, attentive to the lessons of Rossellini: to show, not to demonstrate. He succeeded.
