CINEMA REBORN - Short notes and links to the 2019 selection (9) - NEAPOLITAN CAROUSEL

Ettore Giannini’s sole feature film.
A joyous celebration, in brilliant restored colour, of the history of Naples told via a series of musical vignettes worthy of Vincente Minnelli or Powell & Pressburger at their peak. Choreography by the great Leonide Massine (who also stars in a number of sequences) and featuring an array of popular Italian actors, most notably the young Sophia Loren and the voice of the great tenor Beniamino Gigli. 
After its restoration by the Cineteca di Bologna supported by the World Film Foundation Neapolitan Carousel in 2018 was a hit at Cannes, Il Cinema Ritrovato and the New York Film Festival. Cinema Reborn presents the Australian premiere of this remarkable restoration.
