Bravo zulu to famed playwright Tennessee Williams' script, written for the incomparable actress Anna Magnani; she won an Oscar for her role as the widowed Serafina Delle Rosa. The laughter and player piano music emanting from the film are a joy to the heart! English subtitles are a boon for the hearing-impaired.
