Stromboli (Terra di Dio)

100 mins
8.4 / 10 (1963)


After World War II, a Lithuanian refugee marries a simple fisherman she meets in a prisoner of war camp and accompanies him back to his isolated village on an island off the coast of Sicily. Cut off from the world, she finds herself crumbling emotionally, but she is destined for a dramatic epiphany.

MUBI's take

The first film Roberto Rossellini made with the great Ingrid Bergman, Stromboli eschews formal artifice for a heart-rending neo-realist melodrama. A tale of spiritual acceptance pregnant with volcanic symbolism, the fishing sequence remains one of the most incredible set-pieces ever put on film.
