Agnese, a 15-year-old Sicilian girl, is seduced and impregnated by Peppino, her sister's Matilde fiancé.

Pietro Germi

Pietro Germi (Genoa, 1914) was an Italian actor, screenwriter, and director. He studied acting and directing at Rome's Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. During his time in school, he supported himself by working as an extra, bit actor, assistant director, and, on occasion, writer. He made his directorial debut in 1945 with the film Il testimone. Through the years, Germi shifted away from social drama towards satirical comedies, but retained his loved element of the Sicilian people. In the 1960s, he received worldwide success with the films Divorce, Italian Style, Seduced and Abandoned, and Signore e Signori. He was nominated for Academy Awards in both directing and writing for Divorce, Italian Style, and won in the writing category. He also won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for Signore e signori. He collaborated on the scripts for all the films he directed and appeared as an actor in a few of them. He died in Rome of hepatitis on 5 December 1974.
