Italian Film Festival Havelock North - Journey to Italy

11 Joll Rd, Havelock North

As one of the most influential directors of the mid-20th century, we take a look back at this master of Italian Neorealism with 3 of his films screening at the Italian Film Festival this year:

Rome Open City | ROMA, CITTÀ APERTA

Stromboli | STROMBOLI

A Journey to Italy | VIAGGIO IN ITALIA

Among the most influential films of the postwar era, Journey to Italy charts the declining marriage of a couple from England (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders) on a trip in the countryside near Naples. Hailed as a groundbreaking modernist work by the legendary film journal “Cahiers du cinéma,” Rossellini’s masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotion and spirituality.

One of the most quietly revolutionary works in the history of cinema […] turns romantic melodrama into intellectual adventure.

The New Yorker

It has come to be regarded as a masterpiece, one of the key works of modern cinema.
