Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In this Italian film, part melodrama and part social/political commentary, two factory workers living in Northern Italy form a romantic connection. The woman, torn between the freedoms of the North and her traditional Sicilian values, slowly allows herself to love, then marry, her co-worker. Soon after her wedding, she dies as a result of industrial pollution from her job.


Luigi Comencini made this propagandistic romantic tragedy in 1974 to illuminate the appalling workers conditions in Northern Italian factories. Two workers (the sympathetic Giuliano Gemma and Stefania Sandrelli) fall in love and plan to marry--despite she being Sicilian and he Milanese, apparently as bad as the Capulets and Montagues or Hatfields and McCoys--until she s stricken by a disease caused by the factory s conditions. Comencini juggles his love story and agit-prop subplots with finesse - --Kevin Filipski - THE FLIP SIDE

A rough-hewn diamond from the glory years of Italian cinema, DELITTO D AMORE is a different kind of love story --Movie Morlocks

If you re a big movie buff, love Italian cinema or person that loves a great love story, Crime of Love is quite the treat and Raro Video USA s presentation of it does it justice. Recommended. --Film Monthly
