ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Welcome to the volcanic island of Stromboli, where epically-bearded fisherman effortlessly spout profound poetry about the grandeur of life.
It only seems effortless.
Ingrid Bergman, Ingrid Bergman…
Yes shlocktober, we just watched Stromboli and the tuna fishing scene was intense.
At first I thought it was going to be like the spaghetti harvest documentary, but with the men catching strombolis in their nets.
This is just lovely.
This is a little pedantic, but the documentary is clearly about ‘fishermen’, not ‘fisherman’. It’s in the post twice, and is really a bit confusing to read that way.
Did anybody notice the symmetry of that fin he’s hacking? That’s a mammal tale. Not fish.
