The film is the second part of master Rossellini's post-war trilogy, the first being " Rome, Open City " and the last being " Germania, anno zero ". The founder of Neorealism , Rossellini used almost no script and explicitly rejected the use of soundstages, costumes, makeup and professional actors. The film consists of 6 short stories. The background is some folk stories caused by the Allied forces breaking through the German army after the landing in Italy in the late World War II and attacking from the south to the north. Rossellini recreated the real encounters of American soldiers, guerrillas, monks, prostitutes, and ordinary civilians in those war-torn years in front of the camera. The film is interspersed with many real war scenes, making the audience feel empathy.
