The Evolution Of Italian Cinema: The Times They Are A Changin’

"Come gather 'round people Wherever you roam And admit that the waters Around you have grown."   For those of you who haven't noticed, it's a new day for Italian cinema. Italian cinema is back, but you might not recognize it. If you were waiting for the second coming of Fellini, or Neorealism, or Totò, you might be disappointed; BUT YOU SHOULDN'T BE! Contemporary Italian filmmakers have a fresh vibe all their own. Take a look at these two films that will premiere at the Venice Film Festival: Ammore e Malavita, stars Claudia Gerini and Gianpaolo Morelli and it's billed as a dramatic love story with shoot outs, wild motorbike chases and speedboat escapes. It's also a musical! [caption id="attachment_29809" align="aligncenter" width="1074"] Ammore e Malavita[/caption] Brutti e Cattivi stars Sara Serraiocco, Marco D'Amore, and Claudio Santamaria about a group of wild, physically disabled gangsters has a plan to rob a bank, but things go terribly wrong when each of them reveals they all had their own personal agenda.
