The son of Italian-American parents who had a strong pride in their national heritage, filmmaker Martin Scorsese grew up watching Italian films with his family, and while he contends that the American cinema was always the most important to him, he also has many powerful memories of the classic period of the Italian cinema (the early '40s to the late '60s). A companion piece to his earlier documentary series A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, Il Mio Viaggio In

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Directed, co- written and narrated by Scorsese, it's a deeply personal love letter to Italian cinema -- to his family, to the power of film to illuminate and change our lives.
All film epochs in other cultures should be so lucky to receive such a celebration.
Firmly establishes the brilliant filmmaker as invaluable an educator as he is a director.
Scorsese's exuberance as a die-hard movie buff is, as always, positively infectious.
Scorsese's documentary becomes less a clip show and more a private diary about exploring his Italian heritage and widening our horizons through world film.
If you have any interest in classic Italian films, you'll be in heaven.
If you consider yourself a film buff, you owe it to yourself to check out this work of art.
Along with providing perceptive insights, Scorsese speaks about the personal influences Italian films have had on him throughout his life, making this Voyage particularly fascinating.
Its passion is contagious enough to allow you to ignore the film's omissions.
Leave it to Martin Scorsese to make a four-hour documentary on Italian cinema that doesn't feel like a glorified on-screen film studies course.
A thrilling trip through six decades of seminal, great and near-great Italian films so dear to the celebrated Sicilian-American filmmaker.
From the neo-realism of De Sica to the circus surrealism of Fellini to the glacially paced whatever-ism of Antonioni -- it's all here.
I hope that every movie addict out there drags one unsuspecting friend to this documentary on Italian cinema, lovingly narrated by Martin Scorsese.
Well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.
