Vittorio De Sica plays a petty con artist who poses as an Italian colonel during World War II. However, his masquerade backfires as the plan goes to his head and he is captured by the Nazis, who aim to use his penchant for disguise to their own advantage. This masterpiece from Roberto Rossellini offers a prime example of the Italian neo-realist style of filmmaking. Hannes Messemer, Vittorio Caprioli co-star. 138 min.
