More restored Rossellini!
- 1949, Roberto Rossellini, Italy, 107 min.
- With Ingrid Bergman, Mario Vitale
“Rossellini’s technique in this film is thoroughly modern; it could have been made last week, or next year, by Jean-Luc Godard.”
—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
For many years STROMBOLI was available only in a butchered 81-minute version; we are pleased to present the full-length version of Rossellini’s masterpiece in a 2012 DCP restoration by the Cineteca di Bologna. Bergman plays a Czech refugee whose Italian husband takes her home to his native village on a barren volcanic island where she encounters suspicion, coldness, and a centuries-old code to which she can never hope to conform. In English. (BS)
