Travelling through Italy (a Very Personal List)

A list of Italian movies that, in my view, allows us to understand the greatness of Italian cinema -- and which allows us to take a tour of the Italy imagination, in the past and in the present. (And, no, the list is not complete. I will be adding titles when I have free time. I will also be adding more descriptions of some of the films.)

“ This is a film about Sicilian immigration to the United States in the early years of the 20th century. That is the "new world" of the title. It is a very strange and disorienting new world that these people move into. The film is basically told in the realist mode, but there are occasional dream-like sequences, and these also contribute to explaining the sense of disorientation experienced by characters. At the same time, this is also a film about the old world, and the value and the wealth of the traditions that they have left behind. ” - gianni_gianni

1943, Italy's Salentino peninsula. Tony, an American fighter pilot, raised speaking Italian in New York... (93 mins.)
“ The director Winspeare has done for Salento (and, more generally, for the Apulia region) what other directors have done for other regions: his film provides a visual synthesis of the history, landscape and lore of that region.This film, apparently a straightforward rural story of love and jealousy, is also a profound mediation on the nature of the Salentian tarantella. We come to see how an entire worldview coheres around this particular dance form. Likewise, certain psychological reactions (grief, desire, etc) are translated into and expressed by the dance. It is as though people get "bitten" by the dance and becomes prisoners and prey to the dance. The "pizzica" is the name given to the tarantella danced in Salento. ” - gianni_gianni
 
12.
The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
The life of Jesus Christ according to the Gospel of Matthew. Pasolini shows Christ as a marxist avant-la-lettre and therefore uses half of the text of Matthew. (137 mins.)
“ This film was dedicated to John XXIII. The film uses only the words of the Gospel of St Matthew. The radical fidelity to the spirit and the letter of the Gospel has not been to everyone's taste, and many people have assumed that the radical nature of the film had to with Pasolini's leftists politics. Pasolini always insisted that he did not believe in God, but he also insisted that Christ was a divine being. For Pasolini, the one idea did not annul the other. This film is not the work of a Christian, yet it is a film by someone who could see the radical message of Christianity in a way few Christians have done. ” - gianni_gianni

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A Sicilian family deals with the arrival of a group of immigrants on their island. (88 mins.)
“ Crialese does something brilliant with this film. He deals with some very serious issues (namely, clandestine migration, the suffering of these people, the way bureaucratic systems do not always help), but he handles them with a lightness of touch and a sense of hope. The movie is almost an update of La Terra Trema (1948), which also dealt with the plight of Sicilian fishermen. ” - gianni_gianni

Four fascist libertines round up nine adolescent boys and girls and subject them to one hundred and twenty days of physical, mental and sexual torture. (116 mins.)
“ Pasolini's last film. It was a metaphor for fascist Italy, a place where young people were defiled and where they were forced to eat sh-t. The film has been much misunderstood and reviled. Other people have loved it for its pornographic content and the perversity of many of its scenarios. This is the problem that arises when we treat this film as some sort of realistic document. Even though this is a film that is offensive to bourgeois sensibilities, it is a film with a profound moral sense, one that was born out of indignation and anger. ” - gianni_gianni
 
20.
Medea (1969)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X

The Miracle (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
(96 mins.)
“ This was a surprising and intelligent film. This is another of Winspeare's films set in the Salento region. The film is almost a satire on ideas of miracle cures and miracle workers. At the same time, the film is about a miracle. ” - gianni_gianni
 
22.
The Flowers of St. Francis (1950)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
The film dramatizes about a dozen vignettes from the life of St. Francis and his early followers - starting... (85 mins.)
“ There is nothing saccharine about the portrayal of St Francis in this movie. He is God's fool, and he behaves like God's fool. The movie is a masterpiece. ” - gianni_gianni
 
23.

Antonio, a policeman (carabiniere), has an order to take two children (Rosetta and her brother Luciano) from Milan to Sicily to an orphanage... (114 mins.)
Director: Gianni Amelio
“ This is a story about a policeman and the two children that he escorts. It is story about lives blighted by child prostitution, about love found and love lost. Under the hands of another director, the film might have become either sentimental or sensationalist, but Gianni Amelio steers his way through a more nebulous and contradictory middle terrain and his film never become either sentimental or sensationalist. The success of the film is in large measure the result of what the director was able to achieve from those playing the roles of the three main characters. Enrico Lo Verso (the one playing the policeman) was quite brilliant. ” - gianni_gianni
