Guai ai vinti (Woe to the Vanquished Ones) is a 1954 Italian melodrama film directed by Raffaello Matarazzo. It is based on the novel Vae Victis by Annie Vivanti.[1][2]


During the First World War the Italian front at Caporetto is overwhelmed by an attack of adverse troops. Luisa and her sister Clara remain in their villa, prisoners of the Austrians. They are forced to undergo all sorts of violence, so that Mirella, the little daughter of Luisa, lost the use of the word following the trauma.
