Looking for Title of Foreign Film from 1970

I am trying to find the title of a foreign language film I saw a number of times on an early cable system movie channel in 1977.  The film begins with a metal box falling or being dropped from a cargo plane into the sea.  A fisherman retrieves the heavy box and brings it to his village.  There does appear to be any way to open the box.  At this point, the box is traded amongst the villages in a series of transactions, until it ends up with someone who has a blow torch and can open the box.  Apparently, it's a lead box containing radioactive material.  The time period is the 1930's or later, hard to tell because the village seems remote and kind of timeless. The s etting seems to be somewhere in the Mediterranean, either Greek, or possibly Italian or Portugese. 02/25/2013
