One of Roberto Rossellini's few pure potboilers, this is a contrived “humanistic” study of a swindler (Vittorio De Sica) forced to pose as an Italian resistance leader. Very little of Rossellini is visible in the result, but his detachment from the material gives him a chance to indulge in a few technical experiments with the “Pancinor,” the motorized zoom lens he invented, which would later contribute to the unique visual style of his great documentaries (1960).
