Play Trailer

Pay it forward with Virtual Paradise Theatre: For every ticket sold, we'll donate two tickets to today's front-line workers when we re-open.

Nanni Moretti recounts three entries from his “diary” in the hilarious and intimate self-reflective comedy Caro Diario, which follows the filmmaker’s musing on cinema atop a Vespa, a trip to the Aeolian Islands to work on his new screenplay, and his search for health and wellness after breaking out in a nagging skin rash.

Winner of Best Director at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, Caro Diario is a “heroic tale, told with a child’s wide-eyed wonder” (Film Comment) from a “modern movie man, for whom images have effaced the boundary between life and art” (The New Yorker).

In Italian, with English subtitles.

- Chicago Tribune
“Made of light, movement, rhythm. Which is, when you think about it, all that cinema really is."
