Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Canzon del L'Amore (Song of Love) was based on Silence, a novel by Luigi Pirandello. Hoping to save her mother from disgrace, Lucia (Dria Paola) takes it upon herself to raise her mom's illegitimate child. Not only does she insist upon keeping the child's parentage a secret, but Lucia also cuts herself off from her fiance so that she can devote all her time to surrogate motherhood. Ultimately, both the fiancee and the baby's father come back into her life offering to marry her, but she turns them both down. While the Pirandello original ends on an unhappy note, the film takes a more positive approach. A German-language version of Canzon Del L'Amore, Liebeslied, was filmed simultaneously.
