Il mio viaggio in Italia

Martin Scorsese Verenigde Staten, 1999

sior Vanni's rating of the film My Voyage to Italy

Rating from memory. As an undergraduate I took a course on French and Italian cinema and loved it. A year later I watch this and, while Scorsese's salute to Italy's post-war cinema is certainly earnest, it struck me as four hours spent spoiling as many Italian classics as possible. My advice would be to track down a list of the movies covered and watch them yourself. You don't need Scorsese filtering your experience.
