German Film Director Werner SCHROETER in ITALIA



Werner Schroeter (1945~2010)

Opera, theater, and film director Werner Schroeter resists easy classification. Linked with the new German cinema—the rebellious group of directors who hoped to revitalize postwar film culture — Schroeter's edgy romanticism kept him on the margins. His early film-works demonstrate a taste for Italian culture.

IL FILM: NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI


(1978, Italian and German with English subtitles, 125 min.)



Introduction by Roy Grundman

Director: Werner Schroeter with Italian actors Ida Di Benedetto, Antonio Orlando, Romeo Giro, Tiziana Ambretti, Dino Mele, Liana Trouché.

WINNER: Best Director, Best Cinematography German Film Awards. | Best Feature Film , Chicago Intl Film Fest.

Schroeter took to the streets of Naples to make this unusual chronicle of a poor family, tracing the lives of brother and sister Massimo and Vittoria from the 1940s through the 1970s, while painting a broad context both political and cultural (even reenacting the historic 1964 departure of Michelangelo's Pietà from the port of Naples as it headed to New York for the World's Fair).

"Impassioned, bemused, even at times hallucinatory . . . . Friends and acquaintances in Italy joined in the project, to such an extent that this could be called more an Italian film for Italians than a German one shot in Italy . . . " —Kevin Thomas.

    Wierd and sad movie. Having lived in Naples, it was sad to realize that nothing has really changed there for the majority of the people.
