Aro Favourite My Voyage to Italy


aka: Il Mio Viaggio in Italia
USA / Italy 2001, 246 minutes
Dir. Martin Scorsese
In English, Italian with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Documentary / Film History


Aroview: Martin Scorsese’s personal journey through Italian cinema is an epic appreciation, less an overview than a guide to the films and filmmakers who've made the most impression on him.

Although there is a brief segment dealing with Italian silent epics, the first part deals principally with Italian postwar cinema, most notably the neorealist films made by such directors as Rossellini and De Sica. Part Two deals with the stylistic advances made by such filmmakers as Visconti, Antonioni and Fellini.

Scorsese's dedication to film preservation and passion for film history is well-known, but the inspired choice of films and clips here reveal him to be as masterful a film critic as he is a filmmaker.
