After Ingrid Bergman expressed her fondness of Roberto Rossellini’s "Rome, Open City", the couple-to-be soon kicked their first ever collaboration – Stromboli.

Living in an Italian refugee camp after World War II, the Nordic Karen from Lithuania meets Antonio, a recently released Italian POW. After the denial of a visa to her dreamland – Argentina, Karen marries Antonio and they soon sail off to his home village, Stromboli. The village is not only a fishing community on a remote island but is also at the foot of an active volcano.

With the difficulty of speaking the local dialect and understanding the cultural discrepancy, most local villagers treat Karen merely as an exotic foreigner and a loose woman. In the final scene, she sets off across the volcanic mountains to seek her freedom and a better future. Here, one cannot help but feel that Rossellini has achieved a fusion of melodramatic touch on women and the neo-realist style that powerfully and vividly captures the geographical details.
