Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this Italian film set in the U.S., Marcello Mastrioanni stars as sweet-natured Sicilian immigrant Rocco, a former boxing champion. In the story, he comes to Chicago with a friend to see a boxing match. After the match, his friend leaves him alone in the town, and Rocco grows more and more frustrated at the cold and aloof city dwellers he meets. He finally finds people he can talk to among the city's homeless and derelicts.
