Well, the film is almost done and I'm not too interested in what happens to poor (but exceedingly well-lit) Ingrid Bergman. I want more tuna fishing, more quirky-looking Strombolians (?), more volcanic eruptions, more Italian neorealism. Is Stromboli an Italian word for purgatory? Why do the lighthouseman and Ingrid's husband look like twins? Why am I asking all these questions, as if I were watching a soap opera? Because that's what this film is, with a dash of Catholicism for good measure. Well, Ingrid, the saying goes: marry in haste, repent at leisure...I wish you the best of luck in your life, and keep taking care of defenseless creatures.
