(Viaggio in Italia) Tensions pile up in Rossellini's deeply moving and beautifully nuanced story starring Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders as a frustrated and bored British couple struggling to keep their marriage alive while visiting the ruins of Pompeii. The film resembles a diary, meditating on the problems of the jaded communicaton between the spouses. Rossellini stated that "it was very important for me to show Italy, Naples and that the strange atmosphere in which is found a very real, very immediate feeling: the feeling of eternal life, something that has entirely disappeared from the world."

This film has been hailed by Cahiers Du Cinema as one of the greatest films of all time.
