Cinema Italiano

italiancal2015For three weeks this past October, while on vacation, I enjoyed the hospitality of Italy which began with ten glorious days on the Amalfi Coast in the charming town of Atrani. Known for its picturesque towns nestled into a glorious seaside setting, the Amalfi Coast has also been home to numerous film productions, including notable features such as Roberto Rossellini’s, La Macchina Ammazzacattivi (1952); John Huston’s, Beat the Devil (1953); Pier Paolo Pasolini’s, Il Decameron (1971); Billy Wilder’s, Avanti (1972); Roman Polanski’s, Che? (1972); and Mike Barker’s, A Good Woman (2004), but to name a few.

Starting off 2015, I’ll be reviewing one Italian film per month from the Cinema Italiano 2015 calendar that I picked up in the town of Amalfi.

The films on the calendar include:

January – Divorzio all’italiana (1961)
February – Sciuscià (1946)
March – Ieri, Oggi E Domani (1963)
April – Il Gattopardo (1963)
May – Vulcano (1950)
June – Ladri di biciclette (1948)
July – Viaggio in Italia (1954)
August – Il Sorpasso (1962)
September – Per Qualche Dollaro in Più (1965)
October – Un Americano a Roma (1954)
November – Carosello Napoletano (1954)
December – La Dolce Vita (1960)
