"This comprehensive guide to Italian cinema focuses on cinema as an art form, and the key role played by the director. Bondanella's firsthand knowledge of the Italian language and culture—a level of knowledge unavailable to most American film critics/writers—provides students and aficionados of Italian cinema with in-depth insights."—Book News
"The premier single volume reference to Italian films available to an English readership....This comprehensive reference is an essential, core addition to any personal, professional, or academic film reference library."—The Bookwatch, July 2001
To measure the progress and development of Anglo-American studies on Italian cinema, one needs only to consider Peter Bondanella's pioneering and seminal Italian Cinema from Neorealism to the Present. Despite its shortened account of silent and early sound Italian films, Bondanella's work carries the crucial merit of having opened up a panoramic view of Italian national cinema to Anglo-American film scholars who in general were mostly familiar with only a few masterpieces. Over the years, Bondanella's systematic approach has enabled and inspired countless studies."—Gian Piero Brunetta
