Summary
During planting season in Northern Italy's Po Valley, an earthy rice-field worker falls in with a small-time criminal who is planning adaring heist of the crop, as well as his femme-fatale-ish girlfriend. Both a socially conscious look at the hardships endured by underpaid field workers and a melodrama tinged with sex and violence, this early smash is neorealism with a heaping dose of pulp
