Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders are perfectly cast as the couple whose marriage hits a crisis of mutual boredom and contempt during a trip to Italy; true to his neo-realist past, Rossellini opts for a narrative short on dramatic events, at the same time as using the banality of everyday life to shed light on his characters’ inner lives. The result is a film of extraordinary subtlety and power.
