Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Teresa the Thief is a true story set during World War II. The eponymous Teresa, played by Monica Vitti, is an Italian woman who is determined to survive by any means. Thievery not only becomes a way of life for Teresa, but her claim to fame as well. Stefano Satto Flores and Isa Danieli costar in this Italian-made drama, originally released as Teresa la Ladra. Barely released theatrically in the US, the film became something of a perennial on cable TV.
