Fear

Non credo più all'amore (La paura)

Directed by Roberto Rossellini
Italy, West Germany, 1954
Drama

Synopsis

The fifth and final of the Bergman-Rossellini features is in many ways the most painful. In it, Bergman plays Irene, the wife of a prominent scientist. Irene has managed to keep her affair with a handsome younger man a secret from her spouse—until her lover’s jealous ex initiates a blackmail scheme.

Critics reviews

With his wife as both muse and instrument of ideologic intensity, Rossellini was, in less than a half-decade’s time, able to redefine notions of neorealism, conceive of an integrated moving image infrastructure which Gilles Deleuze would later term the “time-image,” and, with Fear, offer an economical but unmistakably passionate rejoinder to the tired tenets of the genre film.

The result is a bleakly fascinating, almost nihilistic piece that anticipates Vertigo and Michael Haneke.

La Paura (Fear, 1954) is the final and arguably most underrated film collaboration between Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini… Instead of reading the film as a conventional project from an artistic filmmaker selling out to commercial interests, La Paura should be viewed as an experimental companion piece to [Rossellini’s] socio-political masterpiece Germania anno zero (1948).
