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.
Will forever change and deepen the way you look at cinema.
A don't miss one for so-called film buffs.
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.
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.
scorsese's impassioned overview of the landmarks of postwar italian cinema
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.
Good Doc on the impact of classic Italian cinema.
