The Teacher from Vigevano


(Il Maestro di Vigevano)

Director Elio Petri

In the small Italian town of Vigevano, everyone is well-off except for the schoolmaster, Mombelli. His wife, Ada, persuades him to join his brother's company but soon afterwards, financial problems cause it to close down. Ada leaves her husband for a lover and the two are killed in a car crash. Finding that trying to become rich is too expensive, Mombelli decides to return to his school.
