Shadow Plays: Virtual Realities in an Analog World

Chapter 6, Note 82

In the film, representing the sentimental journey to Naples of a British couple in crisis, Katherine (Ingrid Bergman) bursts suddenly into tears as she witnesses the “discovery” of the two “mummified” bodies: her subconscious recognition that her love for Alex, her husband, is dead and yet alive, as the rest of the film shows (their love will “resurrect” in the end).
