Italy's great films are as rich and surprising as life, full of humor, tragedy, tenderness, passion, cruelty, and love. Great Italian Films is a superior introduction to the Italian cinema, acquainting the reader with major directors such as De Sica, Rossellini, Monicelli, Fellini, Antonioni, and Visconti. The volume's scores of gorgeous photographs and stills make very clear why Silvana Mangano, Marcello Mastroianni, Giulietta Masina, Anna Magnani, Alain Delon, and so many other of Italy's bigger-than-life stars became international sensations. The films discussed here include such classics as The Bicycle Thief, La Strada, L'Avventura, The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, and The Night of the Shooting Stars. The book also gives detailed information about a number of lesser-known but equally remarkable films.
