9780199862177: Vital Crises in Italian Cinema: Iconography, Stylistics, Politics

Examining the landmark works that ushered in Italy's golden age of cinema, P. Adams Sitney provides a stylish, historically rich survey of the epochal films made by Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, and others in the years after World War II. Remarking on the period in 1957, Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote that its films reflected a "vital crisis" in Italian culture after the fall of Fascism. Sitney expands this conceit to demonstrate the multivalent social and political forces behind a range of movies made from the mid-1940s through the1960s that includes Paisa, La terra trema, Ladri di biciclette, L'Avventura, and La dolce vita. Throughout its pages, the book considers how the nation's cinema depicts the convergence of Christian and Resistance iconography; contemplates the debate over dialect and a national language; deploys cinematic effects for the purposes of political allegory; and incorporates insights from the psychoanalytic discourse that became popular in Italy during the fifties and sixties. This new edition includes an epilogue that extends the range of the study into the 1970s with discussions of Nanni Moretti's Io sono autaurchico, the Tavianis' Padre Padrone, and Ermanno Olmi's L'albero degli zoccoli.

About the Author :


P. Adams Sitney is a Professor in the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University. His previous books include Visionary Film: The American Avan-Garde 1943-2000 and Eyes Upside Down: Visionary Filmmakers and the Heritage of Emerson.

Review :


"Vital Crises in Italian Cinema is characterized by an extremely sensitive attention to aesthetic issues. It is one of the very few books on Italian cinema that manages to put politics and art, film and society, together intelligently. Its new epilogue brings it ahead to another important milestone in the development of Italian film history."--Peter Bonadella, author of A History of Italian Cinema


"Vital Crises has been widely cited by Italian film critics, and has made its distinctive mark on the scholarly discourse in the field. The new epilogue continues P. Adams Sitney's strategy of strong contextualization, with readings firmly rooted in the political and social ferment of the 1970's."--Millicent Marcus, author of Italian Film in the Light of Neorealism

Description du livre Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1995 b, P. Adams Sitney s Vital Crises in Italian Cinema has become a work of enduring importance in the study of Italian films produced from 1945-1963. Examining over twenty key works of the period, Sitney identifies and explores the major thematic crises at the heart of seminal films produced by the likes of Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Michael Antonioni, and Federico Fellini. The debate over regional dialects and a unified national language find reflection in Visconti s La terra trema and its source, the novel I Malavoglia. The father-son relationship serves as an opportunity to consider the tension between filial loyalty and individuality in works such as Uccellacci e uccellini and Ladri di biciclette. Romantic love juxtaposed with lust against the background of Roman Catholic iconography exemplifies another recurring predicament in the nation s cinema. Rocco i suoi fratelli, La dolce Vita, and Accatone all feature female and male characters grappling with the idea of woman as either the epitome of Marian virtue or Magdalene-like sexuality. With each film under discussion, Sitney provides the relevant political and cultural context to demonstrate how the changes in Italian life found their way into cinematic art. A new afterword extends the range of the study to the early 1970s, as it considers the pastoral ideal deflated by urban reality in Padre Padrone and L albero degli zoccoli.
