Sunday in August was the first feature-length effort from Italian documentary filmmaker Luciano Emmeri. The film keeps within the accepted guidelines of Italian neorealism, albeit with a surfeit of warmth and humor.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Saw this yesterday. Rose-tinted, & not all that challenging, but a happy, fun flick. Weirdly, it doesn't feel very italian to me - the comedic timing felt more anglo-saxon than italian. Doesn't seem to be all that well regarded by italian critics. Whatever, I thought it was a blast, I just wish the "dialect" (yeah, I know, it wasn't real dialect, just cinecitta roman) had been translated less prudishly into english.
