The Bonus Features Disc also features an all-new 35 minute making-of documentary vividly telling the amazing story of how this film classic was made. A highlight of the video is an exclusive first hand account of how Italian authorities banned the film, as told by the studio executive who managed the production. His heroic efforts to hide the film's original negatives prevented the film from being forever lost.
Starring Rossano Brazzi and Alida Valli, the film is based on the novel by Ayn Rand, one of America’s most influential and controversial writers. Rand was the author of The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged and the creator of the philosophy she called Objectivism.
Set in Russia during the chaotic years following the Communist Revolution (which the Russian-born Rand experienced first-hand as an adolescent), We the Living is a powerful love story on an epic scale. Beautiful, strong-willed Kira, a university student, is torn between Leo, a counter-revolutionary fugitive, and Andrei, a disillusioned captain of the secret police. In a tale involving a forbidden love affair, deception, and betrayal, the heroic struggle to live one’s own life emerges as the enduring and universal theme of We the Living.
Produced in war-torn Italy and long thought to be lost, the film was rediscovered many years later and Rand authorized the film's restoration. In Italian with English subtitles. A must-have for admirers of Ayn Rand’s books and for classic film lovers everywhere! Order now!
"STIRS THE SOUL... WE THE LIVING qualifies in every respect as film treasure...dazzling performances... blends glamour, romance, politics, intrigue and danger...this is a film that avoids the predictable every step of the way".
—Mike McGrady/New York Newsday
“WE THE LIVING is everything you would expect and want from an adaptation of a Rand novel: fierce in its message of rugged individualism, yet compelling in its drama.
"UNFORGETTABLY ROMANTIC…a declaration of female independence that was way ahead of its time. FOUR STARS".
“VALLI IS STUNNING, a heart-rending mixture of icy, blond beauty and sudden, passionate eroticism... The film packs a powerful emotional wallop.”
--Henry Sheehan/Hollywood Reporter
"AN AMAZING PIECE OF CINEMA...Valli has the same kind of quality as Garbo-- just magical! I think you will also fall under the spell of this film."
--Michael Medved/Sneak Previews
"PLACE WE THE LIVING ON THE TOP OF YOUR 'MUST-SEE' LIST... a romantic and powerfully-dramatic experience never likely to be forgotten "
