"Quietly steaming, one feels the awesome underground forces within this slumbering giant."
Carmen Vigil, Director, San Francisco Cinematheque, 1981
“What might have been a boring and self-referential neo-nature documentary about an Italian volcano, Vesuvio turns out to be a riveting and lyrical, wordless treatise on the volatility and evanescence of existence.”
Calvin Ahlgren, San Francisco Chronicle, 1991
