A.k.a. 'Obsession'. One of the great revelations of the cinema: Luchino Visconti's adaptation of James M. Cain's 'The Postman Always Rings Twice', about the tragic love between a wanderer and the wife of an innkeeper who murders the husband: for many years never shown in the U.S., the film had a profound influence on the course of cinema, beginning the era that would become Italian neo-realism. A masterpiece.
