Pia of Ptolemy (1958)
This rarely seen film takes place during the Middle Ages, in Siena, Italy. Nello Della Pietra (played by Arnoldo Foa), lord of the Ghibbelines, holds hostage Pia (Ilaria Occhini), the daughter of his rival, in a mad lust for power. A young painter (Jacques Sernas) who has fallen in love with Pia, vows to destroy Pietra. Another good low-budget epic from director Sergio Grieco. Dubbed in English. (B/B-).
