CARO DIARIO
DEAR DIARY
1993, Film Movement, 100 min, Italy/France, Dir: Nanni Moretti

Nanni Moretti recounts three entries from his “diary” in this hilarious and intimate self-reflective comedy, which follows the filmmaker’s musings on cinema atop a Vespa, a trip to the Aeolian Islands to work on his new screenplay, and his search for health and wellness after breaking out in a nagging skin rash. Winner of Best Director at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. “With a seductive rhythm, the film alternates between wry encounters and lovely restful interludes, the latter presented so soothingly that they create a contemplative mood. Beautiful Italian scenery is also among this film's many pleasures.” - Janet Maslin, The New York Times


RICORDI?
2018, Le Pacte, 106 min, Italy/France, Dir: Valerio Mieli

Director Valerio Mieli (TEN WINTERS) returns with this sophomore feature about a pair of lovers (Luca Marinelli and Linda Caridi) who experience universal feelings ranging from joy to despair as their relationship evolves over the course of several years. Blending past and present and alternating between the two perspectives, Mieli delivers a contemplative portrait of the nature of memory and its ever-complicated relationship to fleeting emotions. A poetic collage reminiscent of Terrence Malick’s work, RICORDI? will touch anyone who has gone through the emotional turmoil of being in love. Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Venice Film Festival 2018 and the Best Cinematography Award at the 2019 Italian Golden Globes. “An ambitious tour-de-force about love, time and memory.” - Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter.


THE STOLEN CARAVAGGIO
UNA STORIA SENZA NOME
2018, Rai Com, 110 min, Italy/France, Dir: Roberto Andò

As this immaculately crafted drama begins, top screenwriter Alessandro Gassmann, bereft of inspiration, turns to ghost writer Micaela Ramazzotti for his latest project; the script she provides him involves a priceless stolen artwork. But the tale turns out to be more true-to-life than the painting’s Sicilian mafia thieves would like, complicating things for both scribes. Adding to the multilayered story, Jerzy Skolimowski costars as the director of the film within this film.
