The Glass Mountain is about longing that knows no bounds and about carrying the one you love inside you. The hero carries one woman inside him, then another, and then, when he is with her, the first again. The film is compellingly acted and directed, the dialog so well written as to sharpen the mind, the score fabulously atmospheric. The result is hypnotic and poignant. Gobbi does some singing in mezza voce, something unusual for him. After I've seen the film, its story line, characters and music echo in me for some time. You can see Gobbi in a song from The Glass Mountain for free on the Bel Canto Society site--Stefan Zucker
Richard Fawkes, reviewing in Opera Now
". . . the 1950 feature film starring Michael Denison as a composer who returns to Italy after the war to find inspiration. The film made an international star of Tito Gobbi who appears as an opera singing partisan. A wonderful, moving film."
