Comedy Italian Style
The Golden Age of Italian Film Comedies
by Rémi Fournier Lanzoni


Rémi Fournier Lanzoni’s Comedy Italian Style is the first book to cover the genre “officially” known as commedia all’italiana comprehensively in English. For some, commedia all’italiana serves as a national cinematographic patrimony, and for others, it provides a satirical outlook on the economic boom years. In truth, it functioned as the principal economic engine of the Italian film industry. For in many ways, Italy and the Italians are best known through these works of biting humor and incredible grace. The landmark comedies are those of the 1960s and 1970s, when the political soil helped germinate a new society. But this radiant tradition is not contained within two decades; it started in the days before Neorealism and continues well into the 21st century.

Zitat:
This book explores the work of Dino Risi with The Easy Life (1962), The Monsters (1963), The New Monsters (1977), and Scent of a Woman (1974), Mario Monicelli with Big Deal on Madonna Street (1958), The Great War (1959), and Amici miei (1975), also Pietro Germi with Divorce Italian Style (1961), as well as filmmakers as disparate as Federico Fellini with Amarcord (1973), Ettore Scola with Down and Dirty (1976), Lina Wertmüller with Swept Away (1974), Luigi Comencini with The Scientific Cardplayer (1972) and many others. In addition the volume explains how the genre was able to reveal during two decades (1960s and 1970s) many acting talents and confirmed the future legacy of picturesque icons such as Alberto Sordi, Nino Manfredi, Vittorio Gassman, Stefania Sandrelli, Claudia Cardinale, Monica Vitti, Giancarlo Giannini and Ugo Tognazzi, all of whom depicted the Italian resilience in the utmost idiosyncratic manner.

Ha, ha. Klingt nicht schlecht.

Dem Inhaltsverzeichnis nach zu urteilen, scheint aber der Erotik-Klamauk aus den 70ern fast gar nicht vorzukommen. Dabei hätte mich gerade da mal interessiert, wie man dieses Sub-Genre wissenschaftlich behandeln kann. :mrgreen:
