War Trilogy (Region 1 Criterion Collection) - Rossellini, Roberto
Releasedatum: 26 januari 2010
Roberto Rossellini is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. And it was with his trilogy of films made during and after World War IIóRome Open City, Paisan, and Germany Year Zeroóthat he left his first transformative mark on cinema. With their stripped-down aesthetic, largely nonprofessional casts, and unorthodox approaches to storytelling, these intensely emotional works were international sensations and came to define the neorealist movement. Shot in battle-ravaged Italy and Germany, these three films are some of our most lasting, humane documents of devastated postwar Europe, containing universal images of both tragedy and hope.
Rome Open City Roberto Rossellini, 1945
This was Roberto Rosselliniís revelation, a harrowing drama about the Nazi occupation of Rome and the brave few who struggled against it. Rome Open City is a shockingly authentic experience, conceived and directed amid the ruin of World War II.
Paisan Roberto Rossellini, 1946
Roberto Rosselliniís follow-up to his breakout Rome Open City was the ambitious, enormously moving Paisan, which consists of six episodes set during the liberation of Italy at the end of World War II, taking place across the country, from Sicily to the northern Po Valley.
Germany Year Zero Roberto Rossellini, 1948
The concluding chapter of Roberto Rosselliniís War Trilogy is the most devastating, a portrait of an obliterated Berlin shown through the eyes of a twelve-year-old boy.
