Audience Reviews for My Voyage to Italy

  • Mar 22, 2009
    Scorsese presents a fascinating documentary of his personal highlights of Italian cinema. Watching Scorsese talk about the first time he saw these films growing up in New York and the influence they have had on him is a joy. With the depth he goes into about these films and the amount of lengthy clips shown, you can feel his passion for these films and the eagerness he has to share them with today's generation of young film lovers. A new favourite of mine in the documentary genre, it's made me want to check out more work from the likes of Rossellini, Fellini and Antonioni.

    This is a four hour documentary in which Martin Scorsese discusses some of his favorite Italian films from the Neo-realist era to the mid sixties. This is meant as a spiritual sequel to A Personal Journey through American Cinema with Martin Scorsese. The format is interesting in that it allows a monolific lens, he?s not declaring that these are the definitive cannon, just that they are the movies that mean something to him. He focuses almost entirely on Rossalini, De sica, Visconti, Fellini, and Antonioni, which helps to keep the whole thing a little more focused than the earlier documentary. This is a good survey of the movies in question, but he does pretty much give away the entire film in his discussion, so it might be better for those who have already seen the movies and want some insight into their meanings.

    I admire Martin Scorcese's dedication to film and acknowledgement of neo-realism's influence on his work. This review will introduce Italian cinema to a wider audience and increase appreciation even for the most dedicated cinephiles. While Scorcese's discussion covers the neo-realists (Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti, Fellini, Antonioni), it emphasizes Rossellini's work. Granted, Rossellini is the progenitor of the 'movement,' but this tribute spent half of its four hour duration on one director. Personally, I don't see 'Voyage to Italy' as the turning point for new cinematic opportunities. Visconti and Fellini were also pushing the boundaries in their works. Also, Antonioni's early neo-realistic work is not even mentioned. But, this is Scorcese's opinion and view of these milestone films, not mine. The purpose of this documentary is achieved ~ You are seduced and motivated to experience these amazing films in their entirety and form your own opinions.
