    I’m trying to watch more foreign language films at the moments, thanks for these suggestions.

  2. Thanks for the list. I have seen some of these, but not nearly enough. Felini’s Nights of Cabiria is great, as is Umberto D. by De Sica, but Rome Open City deserves to be on this list on its historical importance alone, and the fact that it ushered in the era of Italian neo-realism.

  3. Excellent list! A lot of my favorites, which means you have great tastes 😉

      Thank you! I noticed that you’ve reviewed ‘La Dolce Vita’, that’s an unfortunate miss from my list. I guess I wanted to bring out to everyone’s attention different directors and different kinds of Italian films.

    The list is a good one.. personally speaking I’m missing Maestro Fellini a little and Sorrentino’s stunning La Grande Bellezza.
