DIRECTOR: ROBERTO ROSSELLINI

The first of Rossellini’s five films with Ingrid Bergman, who to great controversy had left her husband and Hollywood to work with Rossellini, and became his collaborator and wife, Stromboli took the glamorous Bergman and confronted her with the ruins of postwar Europe. Bergman’s Balkan refugee, Karin, stuck in a displaced persons camp, makes a marriage of convenience to a poor Italian fisherman, only to discover still greater desolation in his depopulated village, located on the slope of an active volcano on the island of the title. Her yearning for escape leads her on a road to epiphany, with some of Rossellini’s greatest scenes along the way, including a tuna fishing expedition shot in documentary style and Karin’s voyage on foot across the stygian volcanic landscape.
