Three Films (Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach (1967) / Sicilia! (1998) / Une Visite au Louvre (2004) DVD
CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDELENA BACH, which covers the years of Bach s life from his marriage to Anna Magdalena to his death in 1748, is at once a love story, a documentary, a socio-political statement, and a film of the music of Bach. SCILIIA! Based on Elio Vittorini s seminal 1938-1939 anti-fascist novel Conversations in Sicily, banned by the Fascists in 1942, Sicilia! is a four part film which follows Silvestro, an emigrant who is returning home after fifteen years spent in America. His conversations, with his mother, on the train, or on the price of oranges, as well as the recurrent shot of arid landscape outside the train window, supply some of the most intense and memorable moments in contemporary cinema. UN VISITE AU LOUVRE. As the camera shows us some of the masterpieces held in the Louvre, Julie Kotaï speaks the comments made about the paintings by Cézanne which were put into writing by the poet Joachim Gasquet.
