Martin Scorsese's My Voyage to Italy on DVD in September

15 August 2011

We all know the name of Martin Scorsese, the directorial talent behind such key American movies as mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas. In 1999 he directed and presented an extensive documentary, originaly screened in multiple parts, on the Italian films he watched in his youth and others that made an impact later on in his life, changing the way he made films. My Voyage To Italy takes us on a journey through his the films that inspired him, taking in the neo-realism of De Sica, the surrealism of Fellini and the groundbreaking, redefining work of Antonioni.

The movies that inspired him are from Italy's greatest directors, featuring a wealth from Rossellini including: Roma, Città Aperta (1945), Paisà (1946) and Viaggio In Italia (1953); Blasetti's 1860 (1934), Fabiola and La Corona di Ferro (1941) along with films from Pastrone, Visconti, Camerini, De Sica and Fellini. Scorsese leads us through a veritable feast of film spanning some 30 years of celluloid greats and creating more than four hours of unmissible viewing.

The award-winning epic documentary My Voyage To Italy is a truly fascinating insight into some of the greatest Italian films of all time. It will be released on UK DVD for the first time on DVD on 26th September 2011 by Mr Bongo Films at the RRP of £14.99.
