Description With over 10 million copies of her "Neapolitan Novels" sold in over 50 countries, Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. She was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World and HBO recently turned the first book in the quartet, My Brilliant Friend, into a subtitled miniseries hit with more seasons to come. A journey between New York City's cultural hub and Ferrante's native Italy, the film explores how an anonymous author's visceral tales of love and friendship gained such an enthusiastic following. Hillary Clinton, Roberto Saviano, Jonathan Franzen and others weigh-in on the Ferrante "craze" and what makes her work--and her mysterious persona--so uniquely captivating.

I read a lot of the reviews for this movie, and they are all really polarizing. I agree with most of them, but for some reason, they seem to ignore the importance of what this movie is really about. It's not about political correctness, and it's not about being politically correct. It's about the human condition, and the cultural conditioning that we all live under. I think the biggest complaint about the movie is that it's too "hip." Well, this is a hip movie, and I personally have no problem with hipness. I think most people like it, and if I were to ask you to name a movie that was more "hip" than this, you wouldn't want to. This is a movie about cultural conditioning and the effect that it has on those of us who are brought up in a culture where the only acceptable expression is the expression of our negative emotions. The thing that I can't get past is that if it's not cool to express a negative emotion, then why is it not cool to express one? I don't get it. If you don't get it, then I can't help you. This is the story of a woman who's been raised in the "straight" culture, but when she finds out that her mother died when she was younger, she realizes that she was raised in a culture where it's okay to express a negative emotion. If you haven't seen this movie, I recommend it. The first time I watched it, I wasn't blown away, but over time, I realized the story, and how it ties into all the other aspects of the movie. When you're able to deal with the cultural conditioning that you're born into, the story becomes even more powerful. When you deal with that, you're able to deal with the other elements of the story that are important to the story. It's a great movie.

I have watched this film many times and find it entertaining, humorous, and gives me the sensation of seeing the world through a stranger's eyes. What does it say about the world we live in that we are expected to believe that the worst thing that could ever happen to us is that someone would make fun of our religious beliefs? Well, I find this shocking and inappropriate. There is a word for that kind of behavior. Racism, religious intolerance, hatred and intolerance. But the worst thing that could ever happen to us is the kind of treatment depicted in the film. This film portrays the kind of ignorance that would cause an atheist to believe that there was a God, and the kind of ignorance that would cause a fundamentalist Christian to believe that all other religions are false and that their beliefs are based on lies. I find it difficult to believe that people can be so intolerant and hateful. I don't see any good in it. But, I also don't see any bad. If you are like me, and you are a Christian, and you like the idea of having a God in the form of Jesus Christ, and you like to have faith in the only true God, you might enjoy this film. It will make you laugh, make you think, and hopefully make you appreciate the fact that not all religions are true and not all of them are true. I found the idea of the film to be fascinating. I just wish that it was more about the story. But, if you want to see the story unfold, then you might want to see this film.

In the heart of Spain, in a deep, winding valley, is a tombstone of the poet Pinta de Nuestro de la Sierra (1894-1958), who is buried in a grave that is clearly not as ordinary as those of other poets who have been buried there. The fact that this particular grave is unmarked is a puzzle, because it is clear that Pinta was famous for his love of nature, for his enthusiasm for nature and for his veneration of the natural world. A day later, however, the mystery deepens, and it seems that his own son has been involved in the plot to get rid of Pinta's grave. The film traces Pinta's life, from his childhood in the mountains to his passionate youth to his death, and its perspective is both personal and historical. The film also provides a glimpse of the intellectual world in which Pinta lived, from his friends, who were mostly philosophers and scientists, to his first encounter with a critical theory of nature, and his last encounter with the world of ideas. The subject is only briefly touched upon in the film, but is clear enough to understand the general point of view of the film. The film does not attempt to be a "Biography" in the traditional sense of the term, but instead is a documentary in the tradition of "Dante's Peak". It is filmed in the style of an art documentary, but it is not much more than that. For example, it is not clear why the writer would have chosen to go to the top of Pinta's grave and film the whole thing, and why he would even decide to film the nature of the grave. Still, it is clear that the film is a professional product. A number of key interviews are included, as well as various sets of historical photos. This is a great achievement for a documentary, as the interviews are very well done, and all of the participants give us an insightful insight into the life of Pinta de Nuestro de la Sierra. As mentioned, the film is still in its early stages. I would be interested to see how the film progresses, since I have heard that this is not an easy subject to shoot. We also hear from a number of historians and other experts, including Pinta's brother Juan, who has researched Pinta's life. The film is edited in the style of an art documentary, but is not very long, nor is it very structured. The film was shot over a period of a year, and is only available as a DVD. There are some nice documentaries available that are much longer and more complex, but these are typically filmed in the style of "Dante's Peak", and are the ones most likely to provide the viewer with a much more rewarding experience. I do not think that "Biography" films are really necessary, but this film certainly is more of an art documentary than a biographical film.
