Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia)
Introduced by James Harvey, followed by a book signing
Featuring Ingrid Bergman
Dir. Roberto Rossellini. 1954, 85 mins. DCP. With Ingrid Bergman, George Sanders. This recently restored masterpiece about an unhappily married British couple who are touring in and around Naples seemed mundane to audiences at the time. But future New Wave filmmakers were thrilled. With its spontaneity and openness, it delivered cinema into “the very language of modern art itself” (Jacques Rivette). Ingrid Bergman, freed from her screen goddess image, achieves astonishing realism.
