  • What Is Leonard Maltin's Problem?

    I can't add much to what Steve Edlefsen wrote when he posted his review in 2006. This was the New York City that most people lived in in 1951, and it's nice to see that Hollywood took a leave of Park Avenue and gangsters, however briefly, to present such a beautiful story of struggle and redemption. As for the part of the movie set in Italy: Bill Mauldin was one of the film's advisers as well as playing a minor role, and anything that Bill Mauldin signed off on was going to be totally legit. Don't miss this film for anything. It's right up there with "The Search" in the category of first rate "war" movies made in the United States. No technological wizardry here, just a simple human story of a young man trying to find himself, and the woman who helped him find his way. This is one of the best of the "sleeper" films that TCM has shown all year.

    This was a great movie. Pier was beautiful and I loved the scenary, even though it was black and white. I wouldn't recommend this movie for a guy who doesn't have a job and is in a relationship. It will stress you out. Otherwise, I enjoyed it for making feel oogly boogly.

  • Excelente filme

    Eu adoro a Pier Angeli e este filme em especial. Um dos melhores que ela fez e fiquei chocada deste clssico no estar ainda no acervo de filme do TCM. Um clssico com uma das atrizes mais amadas do mundo. Pier Angeli maravilhosa. Eu gostaria muito de ver o filme no TCM.

    We have waited for this movie (Teresa) to become available for a long time. Pier Angeli played a true to life story about the Italian war brides trying to cope in America.My own Mother was a war bride from Naples Italy and faced the same prejudices of most war brides coming to the U.S. Teresa is one of the best flims of all times.

  • Great war and peace movie.

    I recognized Pier Angeli from "Somebody Up There Likes Me"with Paul Newman, which is reminiscent of this film and JohnEricson from "Rhapsody" with Elizabeth Taylor. In that filmhe does a wonderful job of playing a confident, returningG.I. and brilliant concert pianist who has other doubts. Inthis movie he's a self doubting child/man and she, a radiantchild/woman who helps him grow up. Few films deal with somany human issues and frailties as well as this one does:civilians in war, soldiers' doubts and fears, thecamaraderie of war, returning home, true love, familyresentments, etc., etc. It combines the best elements of"The Best Years Of Our Lives" and "Battleground", but doesthe latter one better with none of the silly G.I. patter - asmall film with an enormous heart. It also reminds me of"Hell to Eternity" (not "From Here To Eternity"), anotherforgotten movie gem which comes after this one, that dealswith war and cross-cultural, family dilemmas. "Teresa"could have been made into three distinct movies - a trilogy- as we follow Teresa and Philip through their lives.
