La notte brava (internationally released as Bad Girls Don't Cry, Night Heat and On Any Street) is a 1959 Italian drama film directed by Mauro Bolognini. The film represents the debut of Tomas Milian in the Italian film industry.
This movie is a socially conscious drama chronicling the exploits of three Roman thugs. The young men spend the day committing petty crimes, and culminate it in a rendezvous with three streetwalkers. After taking their pleasure, the men attempt to cheat the hookers out of their money, but the women outsmart them. That night, the guys return to the city for more exploits. By daybreak, they've all separated, with nothing but feelings of loneliness and disgust for their troubles.
