Cinema Sotto Le Stelle at Casa Belvedere
“Ennio” on Tuesday, July 16, 7 to 9 pm
This summer, enjoy some special nights out under the stars, experiencing fine Italian films at Casa Belvedere on the rear patio overlooking New York Harbor. In the event of rain, the movie will be shown indoors in the second floor Galleria.
Giuseppe Tornatore, director of the beloved film Cinema Paradiso, turns his camera on his longtime collaborator Ennio Morricone (1928 – 2020) in a moving and comprehensive profile of the indefatigable composer. Tornatore’s documentary portrait explores the breadth of the maestro’s career, from his early Italian pop songs to the fistful of unforgettable film scores that he wrote, including The Good, The Bad and The Ugly; The Thing; Days of Heaven; and hundreds of others.
This examination thoughtfully captures insightful commentary from Morricone’s closest collaborators and contemporaries, featuring testimonies from artists and directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci, Marco Bellocchio, Giuliano Montaldo, Dario Argento, Clint Eastwood, Joan Baez, Quentin Tarantino, and more. “Ennio” affords the master one last chance to recount his career and deconstruct the artistic process that led him to win two Academy Awards and author over 500 unforgettable soundtracks.
