Movie Info

Set in Sicily at the turn of the century, this romantic melodrama follows the ill-starred love between a middle-aged man (Richard Burton) and the earthy fiancée (Sophia Loren) of his younger brother. Despite his love for the girl, the older brother made a deathbed promise to his father to allow his little brother to marry her. The marriage is unhappy, as the groom proves to be irresponsible and weak. Following his death in a car accident, the older brother shows up to comfort the young widow. Unfortunately, their happiness is to be short-lived, for the girl is diagnosed with a mysterious terminal disease. This was the final film of highly respected Italian director Vittorio DeSica, who died of emphysema shortly after its completion.

Audience Reviews for The Voyage


A moving melodrama with a heartbreaking ending. Burton and Loren work together well. The scenery is charming and the film is well-paced.

Titled: The Voyage. The most mismatched pair of actors ever, Burton as a Englishman par excellance and Sophia Loren as an Italian beauty. He wants to marry her despite her heart condition. The manners of haughty families and infelxible social customs in 16th century Sicily prevent a great love, leading to heartbreak and tragedy. This appears to be a TV grade melodrama that takes place in Venice in pre-WWI Europe. One could only imagine what must have been going through these two accomplished actors to play in this slow, romance tragedy. Odd, weird, strange, unconventional film about a love that blossoms and then, through sad doctor reports, ends in ... well watch it for yourself. Seems like this one was ripped off of the very popular Love Story.
