Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bondanella's excellent addition to the 'Cambridge Film Classics' series provides an overview of the work of the originator of Italian neorealism....There is a real depth to Bondanella's analysis of Rossellini's ideology and to his discussion of innvovations in cinematic technique such as the 'Pancinor zoom.' Chronology, filmology, and bibliography as well as invaluable notes. An excellent introduction to Rossellini for undergraduate students of film, and the more advanced student or scholar should also benefit from the current bibliography and from some of the insightful analyses."
