Visconti's film The Earth Trembles is a homage to the ideology of the Italian post-war left. The paper proposes a linguistic analysis of the denarratising techniques that the neorealist director used for the voice-over comment of that film to create the impression of a narrative occurring not once but several times. The notion of the pseudo-narrative explored by Henderson (1983) and Kinder (1989) is applied.
