My Voyage to Italy (1999) - Martin Scorsese
Available from http://mrbongo.com/products/my-voyage...

In My Voyage to Italy, American master Martin Scorsese (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver) explores, in detail, the legacy of the classic period of Italian cinema. Beginning with Roberto Rossellini's Rome Open City, the film traces the development of Italian neorealism: its currents and its philosophy, its evolution and its descent. Classics such as The Bicycle Thief and La Dolce Vita are discussed alongside rarer titles like Senso and Europa '51. Scorsese's appreciation is rooted in his identity as an Italian-American film-maker. Less a documentary than an impassioned essay, it ultimately provides a portrait of a national cinema that doubles as a disguised autobiography.

Made in 1999, My Voyage to Italy was a cultural initiative undertaken by Martin Scorsese as part of his tireless campaign in restoring and preserving the world's greatest films. Produced by iconic couturier Giorgio Armani, with the help of archivists Raffaele Donato, Kent Jones and the legendary screenwriter Suso Cecchi d'Amico (The Bicycle Thief, The Leopard); the film serves as an ode and monument to the history of film.
