Dear Diary Directed by Nanni Moretti

Critics reviews

Moretti’s sense of satire has a natural storyteller’s hyperbolic flair, and his film criticism on the wing conveys a sense of a whole life lived in natural coalescence with the cinema. It’s a masterwork by a modern movie man, for whom images have effaced the boundary between life and art.

Even if you have never heard of Moretti, I think this film will convince you very quickly that this person, and this life, are of vital importance, and that this diary is a gift not to be refused.

What ties all this material together is the force and humor of Moretti’s eclectic personality. In each chapter he takes on a different role—as subject in “On My Vespa,” as object in “Doctors,” and chiefly as straight man to the comic behavior of others in “Islands”—suggesting that Dear Diary is three essays rather than one. But the subtle carryovers of themes and attitudes from one chapter to the next is actually one of this movie’s strongest pleasures.
