The Rossellini / Ingrid Bergman Trinity
aka The Greatest Love
Italy | 1952 | Roberto Rossellini
Ingrid Bergman’s second film with Rossellini was reputedly the director’s favorite of all his movies. Bergman plays an American society woman in Rome who decides to dedicate her life to the poor and the sick after she suffers a shattering family tragedy. But Rossellini wanted to demonstrate the difficulty of being a modern saint, so she pays a hefty price for her newfound altruism. With Giulietta Masina. New digital restoration! Cleveland revival premiere.
We will show the 109-min. English version on Saturday, and the 118-min. Italian version on Sunday. Blu-ray.
