      Audience Member One woman show not Blobbo cup tea. (Not watch 2nd half,, admittedly.)(Maybe will later.)(Maybe not.) So far, for serious drama students only. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review naadhira a A wonderful film about outcast-hood, being and living on the margins in society. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Anna Magnani is the centerpiece of two short films directed by Roberto Rossellini, co-written by Jean Cocteau and Federico Fellini; rather scandalous at the time of its release when the second story- "The Miracle" - caused a censorship trial in the U.S. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Captivating performance! Unfortunately would not be appreciated by many of today's audiences. One of Rossellini's Neo-realism masterpieces. Two vignettes, diametrically opposed in many respects but both sharing one commonality. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The first story is alright but the second which is written by Federico Fellini is definitely worth checking out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review jack c three stars to the first segment which I can't remember as it was staged and kinda stupid, and five and a half stars for the main course, Amore, directed by Rossellini and written by Federico Fellini Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
