Caccia tragica or Tragic Hunt is a 1947 Italian drama film directed by Giuseppe De Santis.

Future filmmakers Michelangelo Antonioni and Carlo Lizzani co-wrote the script.


After the Second World War, in Emilia-Romagna, Italy, a cooperative has been founded by peasants. War has destroyed the country. A group of bandits, with former Nazi-collaborator Daniela, known as 'Lili Marlene' (Vivi Gioi), holds up the truck where the money of the cooperative is travelling. All the peasants search for the thieves in a tragic hunt.



It won two Nastro d'Argento as Best Director and Best Supporting Actress (Vivi Gioi).
