Indiscretion (Stazione Termini)
In August 2015, the BFI Southbank in London presented a season of films directed by or starring the Italian neorealist Vittorio De Sica. "Indiscretion" (or "Stazione Termini" in its original Italian) is a 1953 co-production between De Sica and the Hollywood producer David O. Selznick and starred Selznick's wife Jennifer Jones as a married American woman in Rome trying to board a train to Paris to return to her family in Philadelphia and leave her Italian-American lover played by Montgomery Clift.

The film plays out almost in real time and, with the exception of the opening scene, the entire movie is set in Rome's stunning Termini station. Although Jones and Clift are the focus of the movie, numerous other minor characters fill the screen - and the station - to remind the viewer that the Hollywood stars' affair is only one of the many stories being played out in the railway station.

We have handpicked this selection of images from the archive inspired by the look and location of the film.
