It 'an opportunity to discover or rediscover a film that most people associate only Rebel and the myth of James Dean.

Behind the Mirror (1956) is a melodrama, not without a vein of irony that reveals the flaws and weaknesses that lurk behind the perfect face of the provincial middle class of America in the '50s . Bitter Victory (1957), brings us instead in World War II, showing a platoon of British soldiers struggling with a difficult mission and commanded by two officers became rivals.
The selection of films presented in the first day of Torino Film Festival shows what was Ray's ability in describing the violence in its various aspects and what were the psychological repercussions that receive those who come into contact with it. Characters desperate and forced to live, often against their will, under the motto of the protagonist from the slums of San Francisco: "Live fast, die young and trying to be a good corpse."
