The new restoration of Caro Diario has ended its run in our Virtual Cinema.
In Nanni Moretti’s international breakthrough, the filmmaker plays a thinly fictionalized version of himself going on three different journeys in Italy. First, he rides through Rome on a scooter, musing on cinema (specifically Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Pasolini), and has a chance encounter with actress Jennifer Beals. Next, he and his friend (Renato Carpentieri) tour various islands searching for a peaceful place to write a screenplay. And finally, Moretti goes from doctor to doctor looking for the right diagnosis for a nagging skin rash. Winner of the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival and ranked as the Best Film of 1994 by Cahiers du cinéma, this beloved, intimate, and hilarious semi-autobiographical triptych returns to Film at Lincoln Center in a new 2K restoration overseen by the film’s director of photography, Giuseppe Lanci. An NYFF32 selection. A Film Movement release.
