Synopsis by Hal Erickson

La Nemica (The Enemy) is based on the popular 1920s stage play by Dario Nicodemi. The central character is Duchess Anna de Nemi (Elisa Cegani), who for reasons that no one can understand seems to despise Roberto (Frank Latimore),one of her two sons. All the more confusing is that everyone else likes the boy. Only after his brother Gastone (Giacomo Verlier) is killed in battle does Roberto learn the dark secret behind his mother's animosity. And it is only then that any sort of reconciliation can be realized. La Nemica is one of several European films made by Hollywood expatriate Frank Latimore, and one of the few that isn't a straightforward adventure yarn.
