My Voyage to Italy (part one) 2001 12

119 mins Italy Director. Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese’s two-part love letter to Italian cinema is epic and sprawling in scope but also a deeply personal and moving testament to his passion for film. As with his account of American filmmaking, Scorsese adopts a highly personal approach in looking at the greats of the Italian cinema, recalling how he first saw their movies in the 40s and 50s, often on TV. But that doesn’t prevent his affectionate comments on the work of Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti, Fellini and Antonioni from being enormously informative and insightful.
