The sheer star power of Viviane Romance makes the more absurd passages of Crossroads of Passion tolerable. Set during WW II, the story concentrates on the activities of anti-Nazi saboteurs in Lisbon. Flying in the face of Portugal's wartime neutrality, the saboteurs do their best to knock off as many Germans as possible. Romance plays the lover of a murdered Nazi bigwig, and she intends to wreak vengeance on the killers--until the obligatory eighth-reel epiphany. Billed second in Crossroads of Passion is young Valentina Cortese, on the verge of bigger things. The film was originally released in France in 1947 as La Carrefour des Passions.
