When Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini meet on the Italian volcanic island of Stromboli, in 1949, two worlds collide. On one side stands a Hollywood superstar, Alfred Hitchcock’s muse and on the other, the director of neorealist monumental films. When they become a couple, it provokes an international scandal - they are both already married: Hollywood rejects the foreign actress and the Vatican condemns her while she is described as ‘a horrible example of womanhood.’ Exiled from America, Ingrid Bergman settles in Italy with her baby and has to face the failures of all the films the couple collaborates on. Their relationship thus turns sour and Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini divorce in 1957. Remains Stromboli that more than a film is the documentary of a passion and what transformed Hollywood’s golden girl into a remembered polemic icon.
