Gena Rowlands is very cold and unengaging in it, but I think that's supposed to be entirely the point, so it's hard to criticise her for it but at the same time it's difficult to like her characterisation. There are certain Woody Allen films that have clear hallmarks of his love of Bergman and I think this is one of them, but I'd say it's only on a par with some of Bergman's lesser works. Still, that isn't bad.

(de) wrote: Capolavoro del tardo neorealismo di stile, sostanza e riflessione sociale sulla condizione degli immigrati meridionali nel settentrione italiano. Ottimi Delon, Salvatori, Girardot e Paxinou che interpretano al meglio il lavoro di un'ottima squadra di sceneggiatori. Ma al di sopra di ogni cosa prevale la regia di Visconti sempre incisiva e capace di cogliere l'incisivit dei protagonisti, con una emozionante scena del montaggio che alterna i pugni sferrati da Rocco all'avversario con le pugnalate letali di Simone a Nadia. Una pellicola molto cruda e violenta per i tempi, non a caso tagliato qua e l nel corso degli anni.
