Cinematheque at Home: Caro Diario (Dear Diary)

Held over! Plays June 26 - July 17
Directed by Nanni Moretti
1993, Italy/France, 100 min
Italian, English & Mandarin with subtitles

Nanni Moretti recounts three entries from his “diary” in this hilarious and intimate self-reflective comedy, which follows the filmmaker’s musing on cinema atop a Vespa, a trip to the Aeolian Islands to work on his new screenplay, and his search for health and wellness after breaking out in a nagging skin rash.

Winner of Best Director at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, Caro Diario is a “heroic tale, told with a child’s wide-eyed wonder” (Film Comment) from a “modern movie man, for whom images have effaced the boundary between life and art” (The New Yorker).


Cinematheque at Home – curated by the Cinematheque – will offer new theatrical releases every week which our audiences can pay to stream through our website (by clicking the ‘buy tickets’ button). This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic.

Reviews

With a seductive rhythm, the film alternates between wry encounters and lovely restful interludes, the latter presented so soothingly that they create a contemplative mood. Beautiful Italian scenery is also among this film's many pleasures.

– Janet Maslin, The New York Times

 Magnificent [and] hilarious… a heroic tale, told with a child’s wide-eyed wonder.

– Mary Corliss, Film Comment

 Held together by Moretti's wit, his self-effacing personality, and by his singular ability to conjure both joy and sadness out of the surreal.

– Ken Shulman, The International Herald Tribune
