Violent Life

Synopsis: Tommaso, giovane di borgata, per conquistare l'amore di Irene organizza una serenata che finisce in una rissa, durante la quale ferisce un uomo con un coltello. Viene arrestato e condannato ad alcuni mesi di carcere. Durante la permanenza nella casa di pena, si ammala di tisi. Ricoverato in sanatorio, conosce un sindacalista comunista, che si interessa a lui e lo esorta e lo aiuta a prendere coscienza, sociale e politica. Tommaso si rimette in carreggiata e decide di sposare Irene. Un giorno, per salvare una donna, si getta nelle acque gelide dell'Aniene, ma questo gesto di altruismo e di coraggio gli provoca una ricaduta della malattia e, poco dopo, la morte.

- What do you want to do?

- Everything.

- But where?

- The nearest gas station.

As long as we get plenty of dough.

Even if we don't,

it's better than nothing.

Let's check this one out.

Cut it out,

it could be your sister in there.

No, my sister works from home.

Leave them alone,

let them have their fun.

"Gertrude", go find a husband!

- Good evening.

- What do you want?

- Can we join in too?

- Who are you?

He's necking, the dirty bugger!

- So?

- It's not allowed.

You can't do that here.

You think you're at home?

- Why, are you the vice squad?

- No, the death squad.

Can't you tell?

- Get out.

- What do you want?

- Get him by the arm.

- Let me go!

What do you do to women?

Hold him like that!

What's your name?

Come here!

Look, I don't kid around! Behave!

She's not interested in your looks,

she just wants your money!

Nice dress!

Are you getting confirmed?

Let's have a look at you!

Come here,

you won't be better off in Paris!

Stop or I'll shoot!

Come to daddy!

Make way for Cagone!

What a star!

She's classy!

And what about us?

Come on, dance!

- Dance for us!

- Drive us wild!

Aren't we good enough for you?

You think you're too good?

You'd spit in our faces?


Twenty-six, twenty-seven,

twenty-eight, twenty-nine and thirty.

- Thirty thousand and a blonde.

- Our little lord had it all.

Let's go spend it.

No, I feel lucky tonight.

I want to have fun!

Let's rob a gas station.

But don't go running off

like you did last night.

Good evening.

How much?

Fill her up

and check the oil.

Tommaso, check the tyres.

- Let go of me!

- Get him.

Let go of me!

Hold his legs!

Someone's coming!

What do you want?

I'm an honest worker!

Keep still!

Where's the money?

- How much is it?

- It's bugger all, you sod!
