Our Score
Two Women marked the graduation of Sophia Loren from pouting sex-kitten to major league actress as she and her daughter experience the ravages of war, the desolation of being refugees and the horror of rape following the Allied bombing of Rome. Filmed in the neorealist style of director Vittorio De Sica's earlier classic, Bicycle Thieves, the picture earned Loren an Oscar - the first ever awarded to a non-American actor or actress performing in a foreign language. It was a feat not repeated until Roberto Benigni won in 1999 for Life is Beautiful.


In Second World War Italy, a widow and her lonely daughter seek distance between them and the horrors of war. Drama, starring Sophia Loren, Eleonora Brown and Jean-Paul Belmondo.
