A nun who isn't really a nun finds herself saddled with three escaped pows, one limey, one yank and one russky, and forced to hide them in her Rome attic as best she can. She has some help from her beau and a doctor with links to the resistance, but with so many neighbours and fascists everywhere, how long can they last? Will the allies get to Rome in time?
An easier film than Rome, Open City, but also less iconic. I saw it because it was written up as a sort of love rectangle, with the three men each trying to win the beautiful Espiria. It's nothing like that. The lady's fortitude and generosity preclude any indulgence of their basic instincts; instead they all share a fellowship which is more important in wartime.
It's a bit long and the early difficulties where there are three languages and no words in common are perhaps too realistically presented, but it's worth seeing. This is the optimistic counterpart to the earlier film.
