Germany Year Zero (1948) DVD
Germania anno zero / Saksa vuonna nolla
Ohjaus Roberto Rossellini
Pääosissa Edmund Moeschke, Ernst Pittschau ja Ingetraud Hinze
Restauroitu julkaisu. Mukana myös L'amore (1948).
Newly restored version of Roberto Rossellini's closing part of his celebrated War Trilogy. Amidst the ruins of Berlin in the immediate post-war years a young boy, Edmund, attempts to support his family. This devastating portrait of an obliterated post-war Europe remains one of the most affecting films in the history of cinema.
This new DVD edition includes L'Amore (1948), Rossellini's two-part anthology film which proved hugely controversial on its original release. The first part was co-scripted by Rossellini and Federico Fellini and stars Fellini as 'Saint Joseph', who villainously impregnates 'Nanni'(Anna Magnani), a disturbed peasant who believes herself to be the Virgin Mary. The second part is based on Jean Cocteau's play La voix humaine.
