Gieri traces a history of the Pirandellian mode in cinema and investigates its characteristics, demonstrating the original nature of Italian filmmaking that is particularly indebted to Pirandello's interpretation of humour.
Manuela Gieri is a professor in the Department of Italian Studies, University of Toronto.
'The overall organization of Gieri's book is clear and conveys a persuasive demonstration of the impact of Pirandello's works and theoretical ideas on Italian cinema. It goes a long way towards the integration of Italian film studies and Italian cultural studies that has long been the goal of every scholar of Italian cinema, both in Italy and abroad. It constitutes an incentive for new studies and interpretations of Italian cinema, and should have a lasting effect on the reconsideration of Italian cinema and its place in the larger frame of moving images.' -- Cristina Degli-Esposti Screen 'Contemporary Italian Filmmaking is a valid contribution to Italian film studies. Gieri manages to stick to her major theses without unnecessary theoretical convolutions or tangents. She presents her arguements clearly with a precise language that makes this book a pleasure to read.' -- Antonio Scuderi Italica 'Overall, Contemporary Italian Filmaking marshals arguments that are solid and convincing. Gieri's argumentation strategies, combining poststructuralism, postmodernism, and psychoanalysis, are thorough and methodical. Readers are provided with a wealth of background information and criticism that gives the chapters continuity and provides insight into the larger context of the history of Italian cinema. The work is enriched by an extensive bibliography. Gieri has also included an impressive array of photographic stills to complement her work...All of these elements combine to make Contemporary Italian Filmaking an eminently useful and enjoyable book.' -- Lucy Di Rosa Rivista Di Studi Italiani
