Karen, a young woman from the Baltic countries, marries fisherman Antonio to escape from a prisoners camp. But the life in Antonio's village, Stromboli, threatened by the volcano, is a tough one and Karen cannot get used to it.
It was probably the first film I saw when I was 7 years old. And I never seen it until I succeed to get it by the italian embassy in Paris and an italian bookshop, which ordered it for me in Italia. I don't understand italian, but I was so happy to see this film!!! I don't understand why the films of Matarazzo are now completely ignored, in France at least. The mark of this film was so deep that I was able to tell sometimes what will be the next action in the play. It was a great moment for me!!
