EXTRAS DVD OF THE MONTH SWEET DREAMS Directed by Marco Bellocchio Starring: Valerio Mastandrea, Bérénice Bejo.
Based on the bestselling autobiographical Italian novel by Massimo Gramellini, this is a deeply engrossing story of how one man’s life is haunted by the tragic loss of his mother, in mysterious circumstances, when he was a child. Now a successful war reporter, Massimo’s emotional fragility forces him to confront the truth of the past to move on with his life. Adeptly switching between 1960’s childhood period scenes and modern-day Turin, Sweet Dreams is a mature example of serious filmmaking from Marco Bellocchio. There are no extra features on the DVD.
