Italy/France, 1993, 100 min, Dir. Nanni Moretti, Unrated but not suitable for children, Italian/French/Mandarin with English subtitles, Film Movement


Caro Diario

Now Available

"For all his apparent casualness, Mr. Moretti is a perfectionist who shapes his material with subtle care. With a seductive rhythm, the film alternates between wry encounters and lovely restful interludes, the latter presented so soothingly that they create a contemplative mood. (An elegiac, wordless visit to the place where the director Pier Paolo Pasolini was killed is one example.) Beautiful Italian scenery is also among this film's many pleasures." – Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Nanni Moretti (The Son's Room, Mia Madre) recounts three entries from his “diary” in the hilarious and intimate self-reflective comedy Caro Diario, which follows the filmmaker’s musings on cinema atop a Vespa, a trip to the Aeolian Islands to work on his new screenplay, and his search for health and wellness after breaking out in a nagging skin rash. Winner of Best Director at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, Caro Diario is a “heroic tale, told with a child’s wide-eyed wonder” (Film Comment) from a “modern movie man, for whom images have effaced the boundary between life and art” (The New Yorker).
