Product Description

Product Description

Italian director Nanni Moretti picks up his camera and gets back on his scooter for this semi-autobiographical follow-up to 'Dear Diary'. April 1996 sees two turning points in Moretti's life: the birth of his first child and the victory of the left wing in the Presidential elections. Unfortunately, both events occur simultaneously, and the filmmaker describes the chaos he finds himself in as the big day approaches.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the heart there's also a story 28 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
There's something familiar in this: For a few minutes we're following a man riding a Vespa in hilly, quiet streets somewhere in Rome. It's a Nanni Moretti scene, a beatiful passing moment of warm breeze and afternoon sun.

'Aprile' is a montage of such passing moments. Nanni Moretti, the Italian director, carefully puts together relaxed short dialogue, subtle slapstick of nodding heads and tapping feet, and dreamy monologues funny in their apparent simplicity.

In the heart there's also a story. It's a story of a director who's about to become a father, and who can't decide if he actually wants to make a musical comedy about a bakery in the 1950's or a documentary about the state of the Italian society.

In brief, 'Aprile' is a Nanni Moretti film. What else could you possibly want?

5.0 out of 5 stars am I grown up or not? 29 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A fantastic film about trying to choose being grown up and childish, between fantasy and politics. I saw it on my own in a cinema one night and skipped all the way home.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gigantic film 31 Aug 2001
Format:VHS Tape
As usual with Moretti, Comedy is fine, not only funny, also beautiful and artful. A style of comedy only perhaps matched by Woody Allen. Some beautiful cinematography.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok 5 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not his best movie by far but some good moments. I was a little bit disappointed. It's Ok, I expected better from Moretti though.

1.0 out of 5 stars I could not keep awake. 25 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have tried to watch this film twice. It is rather self indulgent and boring. I found the main character very immature and irritating. He seemed to be so lacking in talent and drive as a film maker that he was unbelieable. He must have had a private income to be able to faff about so ineffectually. The only good thing about the film is the fact that the dialogue is clear and easy to follow. Good if you are learning Italian and great if you suffer from insomnia and want a nap on the sofa.
