Giovanni Pascoli’s famous poem is the basis of the script. The poet’s father, Ruggero, is killed in an ambush by a dishonest official. Unlike in the poem, the mare does not merely reveal the murderer’s name by neighing, but tramples him to death several years after the crime.
Gino Cervi, Carlo Ninchi, Franca Marzi, Cesare Danova, Monica Clay
