“Dear Diary, there is something I like to do more than anything else…” These lines open the author’s diary, the confidant of the most hidden thoughts. A diary in images, free and light as only personal thoughts can be.

Even with some lengths, you can't keep your eyes off this amazing testimony and shout of love to cinema and life.
To watch and share with friends, a great way to show them that auteurs movies are not only weird video essays or dead-time full shots.
What a fucking brilliant piece of art. Moretti's masterpiece, and one of my all time favorite personal movies. So simple. The beautifully crafted soundtrack by Piovani would, alone, deserve the watching.
A diary, intimist and nocturnal, is closed & shelved every night, and bad omens ensue when it is open by unwarranted hands. Besides, only serial killers & messianic revolutionaries´memoirs are worth the read. Moretti chooses to reveal his light-hearted meditations -doped with an effective soundtrack to add pathos to an otherwise vulgar sequences. However nobody is too keen on knowing details about someone's itching.
An odd and singular film. I guess you could call it a docu-drama, structured in three different sections about the director's personal experience. Generally the tone is whimsical and lightweight, though the third section deals with the weightiest themes. Perhaps the film is too insubstantial to be a complete success but the rambling quirkiness of it is endearing and has its own kind of charm and poetry.
A delightful film with dialogue ripe in hyperbole and prose. Scooting around Rome, whisked away on islands in the south of Italy and then dealing with our new friend (Moretti) diagnosis with cancer... A good companion piece (of a similar personality) is David Holzman's Diary... Though you'll come back to this one more often.
