Our Score
Emeric Pressburger's screenwriting outings in Britain without Michael Powell were few and far between, and this dour little drama might go some way to explaining why. Pressburger's script aims for the sort of semi-documentary tone that had become fashionable at the time, but this romance between a roadsweeper and an Italian girl needed a little local colour to buck it up, not grey sociological pronouncements. Christopher Challis's grim images of Soho have a certain historical value, but, amid a plethora of dodgy accents, neither John Gregson nor Belinda Lee even comes close to convincing.


A cynical road-repairer falls for the alluring charms of an Italian girl working as a barmaid, only to discover she and her family are planning to move to Canada. Romantic drama written by Emeric Pressburger, starring John Gregson, Belinda Lee and Cyril Cusack.
