9780826418227: Comedy Italian Style: The Golden Age of Italian Film Comedies

This book explores the work of Dino Risi with The Easy Life (1962), The Monsters (1963), The New Monsters (1977), and Scent of a Woman (1974), Mario Monicelli with Big Deal on Madonna Street (1958), The Great War (1959), and Amici miei (1975), also Pietro Germi with Divorce Italian Style (1961), as well as filmmakers as disparate as Federico Fellini with Amarcord (1973), Ettore Scola with Down and Dirty (1976), Lina Wertmüller with Swept Away (1974), Luigi Comencini with The Scientific Cardplayer (1972) and many others. In addition the volume explains how the genre was able to reveal during two decades (1960s and 1970s) many acting talents and confirmed the future legacy of picturesque icons such as Alberto Sordi, Nino Manfredi, Vittorio Gassman, Stefania Sandrelli, Claudia Cardinale, Monica Vitti, Giancarlo Giannini and Ugo Tognazzi, all of whom depicted the Italian resilience in the utmost idiosyncratic manner.

About the Author:

Rémi Lanzoni earned his M.A. in French from the University of South Carolina at Columbia, USA, and his PhD in French from Florida State University, USA. He also earned a second PhD in Italian from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. He has written two books, French Cinema: From its Beginnings to Present (2003, Continuum) and Comedy Italian Style: The Golden Age of Italian Film Comedies (Continuum, 2009) as well as several articles on Italian cinema.

Review:

The so-called Comedy Italian Style has been, in a certain way, engendered by Neorealism, and is often considered a realistic comedy; but it was also a fusion of "bitter and sweet", a genre of entertaining films that at the same time told something on a particular moment about an Italian society in rapid transformation. This comedy Italian Style was able to reveal on the big screen the common denominator among Italians: their gift for improvisation, a gift to look at reality with a knowing smile, even as a comedic satire. Lanzoni's Comedy Italian Style offers a faithful and interesting portrait about a unique period in Italian cinema.

—Dino Risi, Director of The Monsters, Scent of a Woman and A Difficult Life

The subject of this book is one of the most important in Italian film history. Commedia all'italiana was a series of comedy films based on farse that dealt with current events, not evasive, but with their bold humor very pointed about societal difficulties.

—Mario Monicelli, director of The Great War (La grande guerra) and Big Deal on Madonna Street (I soliti ignoti).

Descrizione libro Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Comedy Italian Style is an essential guide to the glorious works and filmmakers who make the world laugh with them. It is for all lovers of enduring, wry, over-the-top, side-splitting humor on film. Comedy Italian Style officially known as commedia all italiana, served as a national cinematographic patrimony for some and a satirical outlook on the economic boom years for others. In truth, it functioned as the principal economic engine of the Italian-film industry.For in many ways, Italy and Italians, are best known through these works of biting humor and incredible grace. The landmark comedies are those of the 1960s and 1970s, when the political soil helped germinate a new society. But this radiant tradition is not contained within two decades; it started in the days before Neorealism and is continued well into the 21st century.Above all, now readily available on DVD and no longer the sole property of esoteric museum collections or art houses, these movies are terrific fun.Internationally acclaimed, from the work of Dino Risi ( The Monsters ), Mario Monicelli ( The Great War ), and Pietro Germi ( Divorce-Italian Style ), the high-water mark and high-wire act of commedia all Italiana - its influence and tradition - are here explored through filmmakers as disparate as Federico Fellini ( 8 1/2 , Amarcord ), Ettore Scola ( The Terrace ), Lina Wertmueller ( Swept Away ), Roberto Benigni ( Johnny Stecchino ), and many others.
