Italian Cinema / Edition 3

Praise for Italian Cinema:

"Extremely interesting and stimulating."—Bernardo Bertolucci

"A very good book and a very accurate one."—Federico Fellini

"The librarian who does not get Bondanella immediately must be petitioned, picketed, importuned."—Choice

"To measure the progress and development of Anglo-American studies on Italian cinema, one needs only to consider Peter Bondanella's pioneering and seminal Italian Cinema: from Neorealism to the Present...Bondanella's work carries the crucial merit of having opened up a panoramic view of Italian national cinema to Anglo-American film scholars who in general were mostly familiar with only a few masterpieces. Over the years, Bondanella's systematic approach has enabled and inspired countless studies."—Gian Piero Brunetta, Professor of History and Film Criticism, University of Padua, Italy
