Plot Silvio (Alberto Sordi ) is an Italian partisan, he and his companions belong to Italian resistance movement fighting against the Nazis . They are at Lake Como . He is helped by Elena (Lea Massari ). He spends three months hiding in Elenas grandfathers mill. They fall in love. Silvio is an idealist, communist, journalist writer. He goes back to war.
