Accessing Pietro Marcello’s adaptation of Martin Eden, Clarice Stasz
Pietro Marcello’s interpretation of Martin Eden into post WWII Italy may not show up at your local cinema. It has won many awards as well as listed at the top or close to on various 2020 best movie lists. You can rent it on MUBI.com for free under their 7-day trial, or for $4.99 if you are already a member. Another free outlet for some is Kanopy, available through some public libraries, schools, and universities.
