#32: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Vittorio De Sica, 1963)

Vittorio De Sica explores Italian romance past, present, and future in his award-winning Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Ieri, oggi, domani). Starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni, this triptych of love stories set in Naples, Milan, and Rome elevates its themes of community, religious devotion, and more through cultural nuances, setting, and musical language. 

Plus, some quick news updates on the Venice Film Festival and a review of Simone Godano’s Marilyn’s Eyes (2021).
