The Consul's self-destructive behaviour, perhaps a metaphor for a menaced civilization, is a source of perplexity and sadness to his nomadic, idealistic half-brother, Hugh, and his ex-wife, Yvonne, who has returned with hopes of healing Geoffrey and their broken marriage.Under the Volcano featuring Albert Finney and Jacqueline Bisset is streaming with subscription on HBO MAX, and streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel.
