DEAR DIARY (CARO DIARIO)

France, Italy | 1993 | Nanni Moretti

DEAR DIARY  film still

Nanni Moretti's' breakthrough film won him the Best Director Prize at Cannes (beating Quentin Tarantino for Pulp Fiction). It's a funny, rueful, semi-autobiographical triptych in which the wry Italian writer-director—an ardent film buff—tools around summertime Rome on his Vespa, then travels to the Aeolian Islands near Sicily in search of peace and quiet, then asks doctors about a persistent rash that's bothering him. With Jennifer Beals. "For all his apparent casualness, Mr. Moretti is a perfectionist who shapes his material with subtle care. With a seductive rhythm, the film alternates between wry encounters and lovely restful interludes, the latter presented so soothingly that they create a contemplative mood...Beautiful Italian scenery is also among this film's many pleasures." –The New York Times. "A masterwork by a modern movie man, for whom images have effaced the boundary between life and art." –The New Yorker. New digital restoration. Cleveland revival premiere. 100 min.
