Storyline

Catherine and Alexander, wealthy and sophisticated, drive to Naples to dispose of a deceased uncle's villa. There's a coolness in their relationship and aspects of Naples add to the strain. She remembers a poet who loved her and died in the war; although she didn't love him, the memory underscores romance's absence from her life now. She tours the museums of Naples and Pompeii, immersing herself in the Neapolitan fascination with the dead and noticing how many women are pregnant; he idles on Capri, flirting with women but drawing back from adultery. With her, he's sarcastic; with him, she's critical. They talk of divorce. Will this foreign couple find insight and direction in Italy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Boring movie by Rosselini
3 July 2014 | by camarro130See all my reviews

Rosselini did everything he could to ruin Ingrid Bergman. This is another one of his miserable movies which is boring and unexciting about a middle-aged couple whose marriage is on the rocks. Why would you take a beautiful exciting women and make her a frump? And what did he do to George Sanders? A clever actor and wonderfully adept at delivering witty lines. All he does is flirt with women. The women he flirts with are more interesting than his wife. The usual European attraction for the morbid. Lots of skeletons and skulls to make you feel like life has no meaning and we're all going to die.

Don't watch it unless you're studying what not to do if you want to make a really good film. The photography was good for the time and that's about all I can say good about it. I think his objective was to destroy their careers. I believe secretly (or maybe not so secretly) he was jealous and hated actors. It's no wonder their marriage didn't last. I gave it a 3 rating because I have seen worse and after all Bergman and Sanders were in it.
