Caro Diario (1993)

Italy 101m, Colour
Director: Nanni Moretti; Cast: Nanni Moretti, Giovanna Bozzolo, Sebastiano Nardone, Antonio Petrocelli, Giulio Base, Italo Spinelli, Carlo Mazzacurati, Jennifer Beals, Alexandre Rockwell

Caro Diario (1993)Dear Diary is a wry and whimsical semi-autobiographical film told by Moretti in three parts. Beginning with a Vespa ride through the residential neighbourhoods of Rome, we learn of Moretti’s love of Flashdance (1983) and his disdain for both life in the suburbs, and Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986). Visiting Stromboli we get a taste of island life while catching up on American soap operas at the edge of a volcano, and finally, determine that his incessant itching was a symptom of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which was missed by the “deaf” doctors in the darkest and most sarcastic moments of this original and surprising film (Klaus Ming May 2016).

    I found this charming. Nanni Moretti seems like a guy it would be fun to hang out with.

      Yeah, he has a great sense of humor, and doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously. This was a fun film.
