L’oro di Roma / Gold of Rome (1961) Carlo Lizzani, Gérard Blain, Paola Borboni, Miranda Campa, Drama

L'oro di Roma (1961)

The German Commandant of the city causes a turmoil in the Jewish community by offering them what seems to be an expensive way out of imprisonment and death.

One Jewish shoemaker (Gerard Blain) is definitely against the idea, but his brethren are confused and at odds with what to do. A subplot has a young Jewish woman, Giulia (Anna Maria Ferrero) falling in love with a Catholic and then converting – though ultimately not deserting her cultural and ethnic roots.
