3 stars out of 5 -- "THE LAW is an entertaining 1959 film about schemes and conflicts in a small Mediterranean coastal town....[With] a charismatic group of multinational stars including Gina Lollobrigida, Marcello Mastroianni, Melina Mercouri and Yves Montand, all in peak form."
A.V. Club - 10/27/2010
"[S]killfully executed by everyone involved....THE LAW captures the understated power struggles and potential for sadism in everyday life..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2010
"Dassin's film roams around a rocky seaside village rife with petty crime, spiteful infidelity, vendettas, abuse, corruption, you name it."

Product Description:

Marietta (Gina Lollabrigida) is the local fireball in a small but corrupt town. A mobster's son wants her, but she goes after Enrico, a shy engineer (Mastroianni). Passions are inflamed and the town's hypocrisies are revealed before all is over. A black comedy starring two of the biggest stars in Italian films.
