F&C1954: Viaggio in Italia

I haven’t seen many of Rossellini’s films… Has he been somewhat forgotten? Based on this film, he’s good, but he’s not as distinctive as, say, Fellini, or as commercial as, say, Vincente Minnelli. So I could see how he’s not mentioned that often any more.

Although I could just be hanging out in the wrong places. Perhaps most people talk about Rossellini all the time.

Anyway. This isn’t bad. I’m enjoying the Ingrid Bergman performance. But… while it starts off in an enjoyable way, it really starts dragging after a while.

But it’s officially the 67th best film ever, and none of his other films appear on the list.

Monkey Plot. I mean Gland.
