Question regarding the white angel and nobody's children
I noticed that the lead actors in both movies have the same name. Is that intentional or an error ? I enjoyed both movies by Matarazzo immensely and both send strong messages that show a solid moral sense of dignity. The feeling of Italy in the era and how people really were is truly captured. As in many Italian movies of the era, you get the feeling that the actors are truly the characters that they are portraying. The director, Matarazzo is truly amazing and I am shocked that he is not mentioned with the greats of the Italian new era. Both movies should be seen back to back to get the true flavor and meaning of Matarazzo's writing and meaning of his work. Having seen the lead characters in many other great movies of the time, it shows the true power of Italian movie-making that is missing in American movies.
