Andrea, The Princess Bride (1987)

“Did I choose it because I’m romantic? No! There are two reasons: one is Inigo Montoya (and the characters in general) and then the cloak and dagger genre and these painted backgrounds that reflect its tradition. The characters are fantastic, somehow they are all heroes.”


Micaelo, Back To The Future (1985)

“It’s the symbol of our generation, it taught us to dream about impossible things. We are the choices we choose.”


Diego, Edward Scissorhands (1990)

“It’s the film that physically excites me the most, I mean, I press play, I hear two notes and I can’t hold back the tears, I am a river, really. In addition to this very strong physical motivation, there’s also the way how the theme of diversity is told, it’s wonderful, it’s like a fairy tale. And then him, Danny Elfman: the soundtrack is fundamental for this film.”


Luca, Blade Runner (1982)

“I think it’s an unparalleled creative combination of three talents and their genius: Ridley Scott, Philip Dick, and Vangelis. It’s the perfect synthesis between literary and cinematographic work, it’s poetry, it lacks nothing and in Roy Batty’s final monologue there is everything. As a photography lover, I think it’s the film with the best cinematography ever and this makes the difference. I saw it recently, it gave me gooseflesh.”

Vito, It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

"It’s a film that always makes me cry, it has a wonderful narrative. Many years ago, I wasn’t a Capra fan, then I was sent to the USA because I was commissioned to write a book about him and I fell in love with Frank Capra. At that time, I thought he was a sort of paternalistic fascist, but he’s a director who talks about America’s contradictions. During this movie, the scene that makes me cry is when after the nightmare about never having been born, he returns to the real world. It seems like a Christian fairy tale for children but it’s a film about America.”


Pierluca, Star Wars (1977)

“I saw it when I was 5 and since then, nothing has been the same. I saw it every day when I came back from school and it infused me with all the love I have for cinema. I think it’s the first movie I’ve seen in my life, I was shocked, every day I would come home from school and I would see it again and again, I must have seen it for a year in a row!”


Francesco, Fantasia (1940)

“Working with Music is a useless profession, I don’t cure anyone, I don’t build bridges or roads. This film reconciles with my primordial world, thanks to its oneiric, creative and hardly simple material. Beethoven is complex, as well as Stravinskij, but we often forget how simple they can be if seen with the creative potential of a child. Thanks to this film, I’m a child and an adult at the same time, since ever, and when I watch it I remember why I choose to do this job.”


Mattia, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)

“It emotes me every time I see it.”



Roberto, Matrix (1999)

“I think I saw it a million times. I like the characters from Morpheus to Cypher but above all, the philosophical references from the Oracle to Ancient Greece.”


Massimiliano, Ghostbusters (1984)

“It’s the first film I remember seeing as a child and it’s the first movie that I learned by heart. At every carnival, I wanted to dress like them and then the Ghostbusters are the Ghostbusters, period!”


Gabriele, Willow (1988)

"In our family, this film is some kind of a ritual. It's one of those films that we have to see on TV when it's on, no matter what. It's part of my childhood and it's definitely the main reason for my choice. Together with my brother, we always repeat the line: "What? What? Oh, Rool, you and your stupid rat dreams."


Alessandra, Moulin Rouge! (2001)

“When I was a teenager, I watched this movie many times. I learned the songs and I never stopped singing them. I used to love singing, and I also loved this tormented and passionate story.”



Martina, Dead Poets Society (1989)

"This movie is a part of my childhood. That scene where everyone gets on the desk, well, I always wanted to do it too. Every time I watched it, I was waiting for that moment, he has incredible power. Then it’s the kind of rhetoric that was useful to me in my teenage years!"


Roberto, The Naked Gun (1988)

“I've seen it 600 times! It’s the kind of humor that I like. I enjoy studying it and, when it’s possible, use it in my daily life, even if it’s not that easy. I remember that Leslie Nielsen died the same day as Mario Monicelli and I quarreled with a person who said that I shouldn’t talk about Nielsen just because Monicelli was more important: “What’s the point?” I told him and we began to argue. But today, that's something I wouldn’t do again.”


Gabriel, The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

“This film is the first memory I have of my life. It was New Year’s Eve, I was about 3 years old and I remember the big worm that came out to eat the Falcon, that scene really impressed me. In my eyes, this movie is a perfect summary of everyone’s life: we joke, we laugh, there is love, there is suffering, family dramas, problems with teachers. I love Star Wars!”

#7 Music is magical. It provides clarity of soul that is unfounded in any other aspect of life. A song is a point in time, a memory, and turns emotions into toys. Lives have been saved and destroyed by music.

For me... What Dreams May Come. I was so shaken by its depth and beauty that I developed a stutter for the first time in my life. Although im not religious, I can appreciate the efforts to really describe the religious theories in images. An impossible task done amazingly well.
