Open city by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

212 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot in the still war-torn streets of Rome shortly after the Nazi withdrawal, Roberto Rossellini's Open City is considered his greatest work. Shot on scavenged ends of film, this classic war saga in which members of the Italian resistance try to smuggle badly needed cash out of Nazi-occupied Rome, helped define Italian neorealism. It was so real in fact, that audiences were convinced the actors were amateurs and, even though Federico Fellini has a writing credit, the film was improvised

A series of propositions about the nature of war and its futility are contained within this Brechtian fable. In a style which is also intended as a homage to early cinema, the use of setting, characterisation and situation are conceived as part of a plan to refuse indulgence in emotional reactions. "'Les Carabiniers' proves, in the end ... that it is morally impossible to make a successful war film". (Michel Cournot)

"In the final phase of his career, Italian master Roberto Rossellini embarked on a dramatic, daunting project: a series of television films about knowledge and history, made in an effort to teach, where contemporary media were failing. Looking at the Western world's major figures and moments, yet focusing on the small details of daily life, Rossellini was determined not to recount history but to relive it, as it might have been, unadorned but full of the drama of the everyday. This selection of Rossellini's history films presents "The Age of the Medici," "Cartesius," and "Blaise Pascal"--Works that don't just enliven the past but illuminate the ideas that brought us to where we are today"--Container
