An anthology of essays on recent figures who made their reputations between the end of the 20th century and the first decade of the new millennium (Sorrentino, Garrone, Moretti, Salvatores, and others).
This book explores the evolution of Italian cinema over the last twenty years focusing on the work of some of the most prominent directors of recent times, combining an auteurist perspective with an incisive overview of the most important thematic and stylistic developments in modern Italian film-making.
In this essay, Mario Dal Bello offers an overview on the recent production of nine Italian authors, giving us view, with critical acuity, as a theme so dense with meanings can be declined on the basis of sensitivity, points of view and narrative choices profoundly different from each other.
In this book two fundamental questions are asked: the first concerns whether Italian cinema, as national cinema, is in reality reduced to a niche market in its own territory. The second relates to what Italian audiences do with domestic films.
