    A powerful film. Each time I see Sophia Loren I seem to discover another piece of her. There are some hard themes that are bridged in this film. Realism on a cinematic level, yet are merely a taste of what it really must have been like for many during that time. There's no mistaking what's about to happen in the bombed out church. It was masterfully done without the need for graphic content. The open hole in the roof and her daughter's blankstare as she holds her are a compelling realization - painfully vivid. Then she tops that when she stops the jeep. More people should see - witness this work.

    Firstly, may I please warn you that this film is NOT for children! The violence in the gang rape of the mother and daughter is so hard for an adult to watch, much less a child. Sophia Loren gives the performance of her life in this film. Her face is a mirror of her heart which is broken beyond repair. This film is about the ravages of war and what it does to an entire people but it concentrates on a mother and twelve year old daughter who have lost the ability to interact with one another but find it again after their shared tragedy. It's an extremely powerful film that leaves you worn out from your emotional bond with Loren. De Sica should have won Best Director for this film but, alas, he didn't. I could not recommend a film more than I do this one. It is one of the best!

    A moving, WWII neorealist film that ranks among director De Sica's best. Loren deservedly won the Best Actress Oscar as a mother who tries to survive with her daughter, becoming the first performer to win an Oscar in a non-English role. Unquestionably, this is a emotional and compelling film, showing the will of "Two Women" (Wink, wink) who struggle to live through continuous tragedy. A fine example of what Italian cinema can contribute to international audiences. I give it a 4.5/5.

    I have been told that the film "Two Women" with Sophia Loren had fallen into public domain, which is why we see only poor DVD transfers made off of mediocre VHS tapes. If TCM could be convinced to undertake the challenge of finding an excellent surviving film copy, restoring it, and offering it for sale, there would be no legal protection from duplication. I fear that we are forever to be deprived of seeing this great film in a quality version.

    Sophia Loren's performance is astoundingly good, the first acting Oscar to go to a performance in another language. She deservedly won, and it is her finest performance of her career. Outstanding and touching direction by Vittoria DeSica, good support from Eleanora Brown.

  • Superb Italian film

    Why is this film not available in a remastered DVD version? To date, I have only seen poorly transfered video versions. Sophia Loren won an Oscar for this role and it should be seen as it was originally viewed in 1961. A superb performance from Loren and it should be preserved. I don't understand why such a high quality film as "two Women" has been overlooked.
