Teresa Venerdì di Vittorio De Sica

Il primo film veramente importante della Magnani fu Teresa Venerdì di Vittorio De Sica (1941). Non lo citiamo per sottolineare l’incontro tra due personalità che poi avrebbero tanto dato alla grande stagione del cinema italiano 1945-50, ma perché davvero in quel film si offerse ad Anna la possibilità di disegnare un personaggio che non fosse una semplice apparizione o uno stanco ricalco di cento personaggi precedenti, già logorati dalla letteratura, dal teatro e da cento brutti film. 283 more words

Bicycle Thieves - Review

✯✯✯✯✯

Not a particularly easy film to watch, not in the manner that the content creates a rather rough display, but because the atmosphere forms an overwhelming impact upon the emotions of the viewers given the state of life which Bicycle Thieves takes place. 790 more words
