Directed by: Nanni Moretti
Starring: Nanni Moretti, Jennifer Beale
Nanni Moretti’s version of Fellini’s “Roma,” though he widens the lens. Three skits bring together all that’s trenchant and whiny about Italy’s favorite leftist filmmaker. There’s a Vespa homage to Pasolini with Jennifer Beals along the way (and Keith Jarrett’s throbbing piano); a charming foray to the Aolians in which "The Bold and the Beautiful" plays a key role; finally, Moretti rants on about doctors (he had non-Hodgkins lymphoma). Warts aside, this is an irresistible Rome (and Italy) movie because all the political slings and arrows illustrate a typical Italian paradox: cynical optimism.Reviewed by: Marcia Yarrow
