Never before released in the United States! Enjoy a digital restoration of the Protected content Il Boom, by filmmaker Vittorio De Sica (Bicycle Thieves). Giovanni Alberti (Alberto Sordi), a mid-level Italian executive during the economic boom following World War II, goes to absurd lengths to maintain his wife Silvia’s (Gianna Maria Canale) standard of living. Giovanni is faced with an eye-popping dilemma when Signora Bausetti (Elena Nicolai), the wife of a wealthy industrialist, makes an offer that would wipe out all of Giovanni’s debts.
