14 July, 2019 – 3 p.m.

A domestic tragedy turned courtroom drama of sorts, this is the Naples-set story of Assunta Spina (Magnani), whose face is scarred by her brutish husband when she shows signs of dissatisfaction. Scarred was the third film adaptation based on this original story, which was initially a novel by Salvatore Di Giacomo, adapted for the stage. Magnani’s strong ‘everywoman’ qualities come to the fore here once more, as her character takes the witness stand – facing an agonising choice between justice and family.
