Product Description

Vulcano (1950)


 William Dieterle


 Renzo Avanzo (story), Mario Chiari (adaptation)


 Anna Magnani, Rossano Brazzi, Geraldine Brooks 
English Subtitles
Released in Italy in 1950, Vulcano didn't receive widespread American distribution until it was picked up by United Artists in 1953. The film is a standard "smoldering passions" yarn, with the ubiquitous Anna Magnaniin the lead. In accordance with postwar Italian law, prostitute Maddelena Natoli (Magnani) is sentenced to spend the rest of her life in disgrace in her hometown. Returning to the island of Vulcano, Maddelena tries to connect with her younger sister (Geraldine Brooks) and brother (Enzo Stajola), who greet her with hostility. Her only solace is the love of deep-sea diver Donato (Rosanno Brazzi), whose own past is as checkered as Maddelena's. The story is resolved by Mother Nature herself, during a spectacular volcanic eruption.

  1. Magnani At Her Best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 26th 2018

    I've been a big fan of Anna Magnani ever since her debut in Italian films in the early to mid 1940s. So, when I saw "Vulcano", one I have never seen, I just about flipped. Wondering what the quality was like, after just a few moments into the DVD, I knew I had a gem here. Clear picture, good sound, (as far as 1950s soundtracks go). Also, a very young and sexy Rossano Brazzi, played off Magnani like a trooper. Rating 5 stars. Bravissimo Zeus!
