NAPOLI MILIONARIA / SIDE STREET STORY
Hunger, Humour and Fantasy

During World War II, the life of a poor Naples tram driver's family is thrown into disruption when he is arrested by the Germans. He gets back to find that his wife is dabbling in the black market, his son has become a thief and his daughter is working as a prostitute. The fascists, the Nazis and the American troops have all taken their turn at the helm, but for the poor people of Naples nothing has changed, the daily struggle for survival is still the same. The need to save their young and seriously ill daughter, makes the family take another look at life and recapacitate on their values.
BIOGRAPHY

EDUARDO DE FILIPPO

One of a long line of theatre artists in his native Naples (his brother Peppino was an actor, and his sister Titina, an actress), Eduardo worked simultaneously as an actor and a playwright before joining the world of cinema as an actor, screenwriter and director. He had a hand in films by Comencini, De Sica, Mattoli, Camerini and Corrafavi, among other, and directed another eleven based on his own theatre pieces. His neorealist style has a touch of lyrical extravagance.
