Like the Leaves

Like the Leaves (Italian:Come le foglie) is a 1935 Italian drama film directed by Mario Camerini and starring Isa Miranda, Mimì Aylmer and Nino Besozzi. It was based on a play by Giuseppe Giacosa. The film radically altered the image of Miranda from her previous film Everybody's Woman (1934) in which she had played a glamorous film star. In this case she appeared as a modest middle-class woman. Miranda was widely praised for her performance, further enhancing her status as the leading Italian actress.[1]
