LA NONNA SABELLA / OH, SABELLA!
Hunger, Humour and Fantasy

Young engineer Rafaele Renzullo returns to his village form Naples after ten years of absence to be with his dying grandmother. However the truth of the story is that the old lady is in perfect health and that she has really asked him to come for two reasons: because she doesn't want a younger sister, Carmelina, to marry the ederly Emili, and because she wants her grandson to marry the richest woman in the village. But love doesn't always undertand the practicalities of life and Sabella's plans are soon thrown to the wind as Raffaele falls in love with his childhood playmate, the beautiful but penniless Lucía, and Carmelina gets married to Emilio despite Sabella's disapproval. 

BIOGRAPHY

DINO RISI

After the enormous success of his previous film, Poveri ma belli which he more or less put together by himself, Risi was given a rgeat deal of leeway with his directing, hence allowing him to gradually withdraw from the neorealist movement. While not completely forgetting this tendency, due to the fact that Festa Campanile's original story-line was virtually crying out for it, La nonna Sabella (Golden Shell at San Sebastian '57) shows the beginnings of a rupture.
