Journey to Italy. Among the most influential films of the postwar era, Robert Rossellini's Journey to Italy charges the declining marriage of a couple from England on a trip in the countryside near Naples. More than just the anatomy of a relationship, Rossellini's masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotion and spirituality.
Europe '51. Ingrid Bergman plays a wealthy, self-absorbed Rome socialite racked by guilt over the shocking death of her young son. As a way of dealing with her grief and finding meaning in her life, she decides to devote her time and money to the city's poor and sick. Her newfound, single-minded activism leads to conflicts with her husband and questions about her sanity.
Stromboli. After World War II, a Lithuanian refugee marries a simple Italian 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.
The resulting collaboration produced a series of films that are works of both sociopolitical concern and metaphysical melodrama. Stromboli, Europe '51, and Journey to Italy are intensely personal portraits that reveal the director at his most emotional and the glamorous actor at her most anguished, and that capture them and the world around them in transition.
