Thematically, the film is built around the persona of the great Italian actress, Anna Magnani, but Pasolini uses her performance to create his version of the great Mediterranean Mother. Making visual references to well-known European paintings, particularly Christian icons, and highlighting the expressions "chiefly faces" of Italian commoners, Pasolini creates a distinctively visual modern tragedy.Was this review helpful?
