IL ETAIT UNE FOIS...ROME VILLE OUVERTE Marie GENIN - Serge JULY 2006 - 00:52

Written in 1944, the filming began in January 1945 while the Germans still occupied the northern half of Italy, following the liberation of Rome by the Allied forces and the takeover of the capital by the Italian anti-Fascists. The filming ended during the summer after Mussolini’s death and the German surrender. Roberto Rossellini, who made his first three films under the Fascist regime, succeeded in his fourth film to weave the legend of a post-war world. It is the story of the combative union of the Priest and the Communist worker, two emblematic figures of Italian society joined together in their resistance to Nazism. This mythical union between the two heroes of the film would help rebuild Italy.

JOHN FORD / JOHN WAYNE: THE FILMMAKER AND THE LEGEND Sam POLLARD 2006 - 01:24

John Ford and John Wayne, a friendship and professional collaboration that spanned 50 years, changed each others lives, changed the movies and, in the process, changed the way America saw itself. It was a relationship that reflected all the elements and all the paradoxes of 20th century America: generosity of spirit, abuse of power, a sense of loyalty and a restless nationalism that didn’t quite know what to do with itself.

MARCELLO, UNA VITA DOLCE Annarosa MORRI - Mario CANALE 2006 - 01:34

A life filled with sweetness. His sweet look, his foxy smile and his legendary indolence allowed him to remain slightly detached and to protect his private life. Even today, saying Mastroianni or Marcello evokes an era: a world made up of skill, beauty, charm, kindness and seduction. This documentary starts off with an old documentary created by Antonello Branca in ’64, in which Mastroianni is shown at the height of his success, and contains interviews with Mastroianni recorded at various moments throughout his life, excerpts from his films, shots taken on set, testimonies from his daughters Barbara and Chiara as well as actors, directors and the people close to him.
