(1954) Directed by Roberto Rossellini. Ingrid Bergman, George Sanders, Maria Mauban. (97 min.) DCP.
In the shadow of a dormant volcano, a bored married couple, searching for reasons to be irritated with one another, travel to Naples to sell a family villa. Ingrid Bergman’s passion for serious filmmaking, and director Roberto Rossellini, caused her to abandon Hollywood glitz for neorealism at the height of her career.
“Rossellini’s finest fiction film . . . a crucial work, truthful and mysterious” (Chicago Reader).
Our films are piquantly peripatetic this season, celebrating Ingrid Bergman’s 100th birthday, reflecting NCMA exhibitions on Elizabethan portraiture and Ansel Adams landscapes, transporting us to the North Carolina mountains of the early 20th century, and basking in the forbidden lust and corruption of midcentury Mexican noir.
