Director Nanni Moretti goes on three disparate journeys. First, he rides through Rome on a Vespa. Next, he and his friend, Gerardo, tour the Aeolian Islands searching for a peaceful place to write. Finally, Moretti, hampered by a skin rash, goes from doctor to doctor looking for the right diagnosis.
Divided into three chapters, Nanni Moretti’s Dear Diary has become a cult film across Europe for its gentle, optimistic blend of documentary and fiction, slapstick and meditation. Winner of the Best Director prize at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.
