I'm really surprised that recent customers are having problems obtaining a copy of this iconic film except via Korea. I have a video cassette of it and am thankful that I still have it. Ingrid Bergman acted her role in English, that much I do know. How much of the other dialogue was dubbed into English from Italian I'm not sure. The other actors were not actors at all, which was the way Rossellini wanted it. The message of this film is at least as good as that of "Open City". It's a dark film - literally! and it was unfortunate that its quality as film was overshadowed by the brouhaha over Bergman's love affair with [and subsequent marriage to] Rossellini. I've watched the film many times in order to soak up Bergman's performance as the frustrated refugee, who marries an Italian fisherman out of desperation and finally, after struggles with herself, accepts her new life and that of the child she is expecting. Worth seeing more than once!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the second Korean import of 'Stromboli' that I have bought through Amazon. It is so difficult to obtain that I chose the only one claiming to have English subtitles. The first DVD from Amazon was only £3.99, and advertised as being in Italian with English subtitles. They are not English they are Korean. I didn't return it as it was not expensive and I simply 'wrote it off' as a bad purchase. I subsequently purchased another, also saying it had English subtitles. This time the price was £14.99. I received an identical Korean subtitled DVD, very substandard ........ with Korean subtitles.Stromboli [1950] [Korean Import]

This time they're both going back.
