Francesco Patierno brings Norman Lewis' war diary to life in a feature documentary linking unique archive, with feature film footage and accompanied by the narration of Lewis' words made by Oscar Nominated British actor Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Black Mass, Sherlock). The documentary NAPLES'44, creates a contrast between extraordinary footage images, mostly unreleased before, and fascinating excerpts from famous films set in the city, to re-create for the audience, the authentic scenario that Lewis found when he arrived there. Lewis' masterpiece, full of such extraordinary images and characters, is a lyrical, ironic and detached account of Naples in the aftermath of war: a tempestuous, byzantine and opaque city massacred by a hundred air raids, in which working classes, artisans, office workers, teachers, lawyers, maids, judges and impoverished noblemen lived side by side in a throbbing and complex social melting pot. A Naples that has never been conveyed more vividly than by Norman Lewis' literary jewel.

A little disappointed with this movie. It seemed like a documentary but not very well done. The characters were quite a few and not a lot of characters. But the production was good. I liked the photography, the shots of the Japanese uniforms. I also liked the fact that the documentary went through the villages of the Japanese soldiers. I liked the part about the shogi game, the old people and the prisoners of war. I thought the movie could have been longer and better edited, but I liked the part of the Japanese soldiers being interviewed, and the section of the village being filmed was well done. I would recommend this documentary to everyone. It was nice to see a different perspective on the war. I also liked the use of the Japanese soldiers and the shogi game. I would like to see the movie again, but I would like to see more of the Japanese soldiers and the village.

I recently saw this film and I must say I was impressed. The film tells the story of the Italian Prisoners of War in Italy during World War II. It begins with the first prisoners arriving at a port where they were supposed to be sent. These prisoners were not given a choice. They were to be sent to a country they did not know and the war was not over yet. There were other prisoners who were supposed to be executed. However, these prisoners were not aware that they would not be executed. They would be allowed to stay in Italy to serve out their sentences. One of the prisoners is a doctor. The doctor is a hero and a symbol of resistance. His actions are not illegal and he does not deserve to die. The doctor decides to tell the truth to the Italian authorities. After the doctor's testimony, the other prisoners were given the opportunity to make their own decisions about their fate. The story of the Italian prisoners of war is one of the most disturbing stories that I have ever seen. This is a true story and the way it is told is very realistic. It shows the real suffering that was inflicted on these men. It shows the dedication of these men to stand up for their rights and to ensure that the war would not be over. It shows the bravery of the Italian soldiers who refused to give in to the German onslaught and fought back. It shows the horror of the brutality of the war. It shows the sacrifices these men made in order to save their country. It shows the courage of the Italian people who stood up and fought for their rights. The movie was beautifully shot and the actors were amazing. I think this film is important because it shows the horror and suffering that the Italian people suffered during World War II.

Just returned from seeing the '44, and I can't say that I have ever seen a better film on the subject of WWII than this. It was a very well done documentary that brought the movie to life. There were many moments in the movie that were very moving, and some of the quotes from this documentary were very powerful and poignant. In this film, they included several real life characters that were killed during the war. Some of these men were the "heroes" of the movie, and some of them were the "villains". You were always able to follow the story of these people, and see the true cost of war in this case. The story of the "heroes" was very interesting and you were able to feel for them. The other people that were in this documentary were also very interesting, and their stories were very similar to the story of these men. There were times where I had to rewind the movie to see what was happening, because the time jumps that happened were very fast. The only drawback that I had was that the film was rather slow in some parts, but I guess that was what you would expect from a documentary about a subject that is so important to the world today. Overall, I would give this a "9".

I'm not sure what the purpose of this documentary is. On the one hand it looks like it was made to justify what has been going on in the Middle East. On the other hand it looks like it was made to make the United States look good. Either way, it's just a bunch of people talking, and they all talk like they are talking to each other, and that's just a waste of time. It is probably the most tedious documentary I've ever seen, but the best thing about it is that it is actually informative. If you want to see what the Middle East looks like, or you want to know more about the Arab world, or if you want to see what's going on in the Middle East, then you should definitely see this documentary. If you want to watch a bunch of people talk to each other, and then talk like they are talking to each other, then you should definitely see this documentary.

I went to see this movie expecting it to be about the Spanish Civil War. It was more of a documentary about the Italian occupation of the island. The movie was good and informative. However, the only thing that made me want to see it again was the soundtrack. It's so good, I can't get it out of my head. If you like the soundtrack, I think you should see this movie. I give this movie 8/10.

It's been a long time since I watched a documentary on a war, but this one is certainly worth the time. Some highlights are: The Wurttemberg border crossing at Nuremberg; The task force in the Battle of the Bulge; The end of the Battle of the Bulge. The film is made in German and is a bit on the slow side. I would recommend this documentary to anyone interested in the war. It's certainly well worth your time.

In this film, War of the Worlds is revisited. This time, the action is between the Germans and the Russians. The American government is obviously worried about the weather and they decide to send the military to protect the president. In the meantime, the Germans are fighting in the snow and the Russians have been ordered to defend the city. This is the backdrop for the tale of the past and the present. The whole movie is a commentary on the current situation. You can feel the confusion, anxiety and terror the US military is feeling. It's a very tense and very real movie. The narrative is very interesting and you can see the reactions of the actors, even though you don't know the actors. The main character, the actor who plays the president is amazing. He can express his feelings very convincingly. The other actors, who play the generals, are just as good. They also convey their emotions very convincingly. The script is very interesting. It contains many jokes and puns. It is also very violent and the scenes are very intense. The whole thing is very disturbing and you can feel the tension in the movie. There are some parts that are disturbing and very disturbing. But it's still a very interesting movie and I really recommend it to people who are interested in the current situation in the world.

I'm a great fan of war documentaries, especially those that are actually based on true stories. I went to see this movie because of all the attention it got, but I was really surprised at how much it captured the reality of the period. It's really difficult to get a handle on the true nature of the war. I was hoping for more of a history lesson, but I was more impressed with how well this movie was made. I thought that it was very accurate to the real life events of the war. In addition, I think it was a great representation of how men really felt during this time. I felt very sorry for the men who fought in this war, but also like I had to do the same. I also was very impressed with the performances of the actors. I have a feeling that they did an excellent job, considering they were actually in a real life situation. The most important thing that I think made this movie better was the cinematography. It was beautiful, and it really showed how the war affected the people who lived through it. It also showed the beauty of the Italian countryside, which I thought was extremely beautiful. The music also fit the movie very well, and I think that the score for the movie was also very well done. All in all, I think this movie is very accurate, and I was very impressed by the accuracy. I'm going to go see it again, and I'm definitely going to be buying it on DVD.

A lot of people, including myself, have said that this is the worst war movie ever made, and I agree. However, I don't think it's that bad. I think it's a lot better than The Green Berets (which I have also reviewed). It is however, the weakest of the series. While I did like The Green Berets, this movie didn't have the same impact. I also thought the war scenes were well done, but the film was way too long. I also thought that the way the war was shown was rather superficial. It's like a movie you would see at a movie theater. It's not really something that would really affect your life. The only thing I did like was the cinematography. I don't know if that was the best way to show the war, but it was good. I also thought that it was a bit boring at times. But all in all, I thought it was an OK film. I thought that it was a good introduction to the war. I would recommend it to people who are interested in the war.

There is a major conflict taking place in Naples in 1944. The US military is in control, but the city's people are being starved and raped. It is one of the most horrifying scenes I have ever seen. It is so well-made that I could watch this film again and again and never get tired of it. I saw this movie the day after I saw "The Lives of Others", and it was as painful as the previous two. This film shows the tragedy of the bombing of Naples, while making it clear that these people are victims of an evil force and not a government. This movie is a must see.

The former Yugoslavian republic of Macedonia is the subject of this superb documentary from director Susanne Luthi, who was born in the country and has been there most of her life. She was born in Yugoslavia, the country that never really recovered from the Yugoslavian civil war, and now resides in Paris. It is here that she has made a film about her country, about how her family and friends reacted to her growing up in the country, how the country is changing and the role the country will play in the coming years. The film, titled 'The Kidnappings of the Republic of Macedonia', tells the story of the kidnapping of three Macedonian girls and how their families reacted to this. They all have very different stories, but in the end it is the story of a young girl who has been raised in a small village in the country, who is now living in Paris, working in a restaurant, and trying to figure out what she wants to do in life. She is at the same time the victim and the survivor, of this horrible act, and she hopes to be able to change the lives of others. The film is a wonderful piece of work, and Luthi has an amazing ability to tell the story without making it too cheesy. The interviews with the families and friends of the girls are very emotional and the reactions to the events are very interesting. The interviews are very good, and Luthi makes you feel the emotions that these girls must have felt, which I think is very important for the film. The story is told in a very realistic way, which is very impressive, as it really is an emotional film. I really liked it, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries. The film is very well made, and the interviews are very good, so it is a very good documentary. The movie was nominated the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, and it was nominated the Golden Globe for Best Documentary. This is a great film, and it is one that I would recommend to anyone who likes documentaries. It is a must see for anyone who likes a good documentary.

Just finished this documentary. It is so depressing that the director, who also was a POW, has no way of explaining why the film is so depressing. I do know that the soldier who is supposed to have committed suicide actually survived. This is all very sad and upsetting, but the film is just so good, so beautifully filmed, and so many people's stories are so powerful. It is so sad that the guy who was supposed to have committed suicide actually survived. It is so sad that this film is so well-done. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a truly great documentary.

This documentary is well worth seeing. There is a lot of history, and it is well worth seeing. The documentaries about the occupation are good, as well as the other two documentaries about the occupation. The best documentary I have seen is this one. It is well worth seeing.

From a stand-point, this documentary is an excellent film. I have always been a supporter of the War on Terror, and I was happy to see that it was dealt with honestly, but at the same time, the film was also quite emotional, and some parts are quite touching. The film deals with the history of the war, and it does so in a very realistic manner, and it is well filmed. The documentary also has some good music, and it is very moving. However, it does have a few flaws. It is very episodic, and some parts feel a bit rushed. Also, some of the interviews are quite hard to follow. Overall, it is a good film, but I do feel that some parts of it could have been better. Overall, I would recommend this film, but be prepared for some flaws.

This is a great documentary. The film is made in the context of the events of the WWII and focuses on the role of the men of the army in the invasion of Normandy. The armymen are shown as intelligent and human beings, unlike the men of the Nazi party, who are portrayed as blood thirsty. The men of the army, who fought and fought, saw and fought and fought. The film is very moving and gives a great insight into the war, its causes and the events of the day. The documentary is very informative and shows the war in a very factual and accurate manner. The film does a great job at showing the daily lives of the men and the daily struggle of the soldiers, especially the high-ranking officers. I give this film an 8 out of 10. This is a great documentary.

I was expecting a boring war documentary, but this was more than I expected. It's more like an investigative documentary. I feel that a lot of documentaries about war are boring because the people involved in the documentary don't really have any insights into the actual war. This movie is about the lives of soldiers. The way they are portrayed is really interesting and you feel like you are getting to know more about them than you are. I think that a lot of people would not understand the subject of this documentary and this is what I mean when I say that it's more of a documentary than a documentary. I think that the movie is quite good, but I don't really recommend it to everybody. If you like documentaries, then you'll love this movie.

In my opinion, this is the best documentary of the war in Vietnam. If you are a veteran of the Vietnam War, this is a must see. It is very factual, and it tells the story of the atrocities committed by the US Government during the war. It was a time in history when there were no laws and the US Government tried to justify their actions. The US Government committed atrocities against the Vietnamese, and the government of Vietnam was very frustrated by the US Government. The war was not just about victory or defeat, but about genocide. The Vietnamese people were being killed by the US Government, and they were trying to stop this. This film does a great job at showing the atrocities that the US Government committed during the war. I do not believe this film is about the war, but it is about the US Government's crimes against the Vietnamese people during the war. This film should be required viewing for all people who have a bias towards the US Government. This film is so powerful, and it should be required viewing for all Americans.

It is hard to believe that there are still so many film makers who haven't got the guts to do what they should have done to make a documentary about the real war in '44. This is a superb film, you need to watch it. It is a well-made film, with good photography, great use of black and white, and a good idea of what really happened in the Battle of the Bulge. It is just a shame that the production companies and the studios that made this film were not more adventurous in producing a documentary about the real war. This movie is the best that I have seen about the actual battle, and is a must-see for any serious film buff.

This film is a good look at the situation in Germany in the early 60's, the period that is covered here. The film does a great job of showing the conditions and issues that were faced in Germany as the world became aware of the atrocities of Nazi Germany. There are some very interesting historical facts, as well as great footage of the actual events. It's a good look at what life was like during that time. It's also a very interesting look at how the Soviets came to be involved in the conflict. I really enjoyed the film. It was very well made and informative. It was also interesting to see how the movie dealt with some of the facts, but didn't go into much detail on it. The film does a good job of showing what the people were going through during those years and the state of mind that the people had. It also shows some of the great movies made during this time. One of the best scenes was when the movie was showing the movie about the US invasion of Germany. It showed a lot of footage of the US forces and how they were being killed. The movie also showed some of the real life footage from those days. It also showed some of the Nazi propaganda from the time, which I also liked. It was very well done. Overall, it was a very good film, and it was very informative. I liked it. I think it's a very good look at what the people were going through during the 60's.

There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this movie. The cinematography is outstanding, the story is very interesting and the soundtrack is amazing. I also enjoyed the fact that the characters are not "heroes" or "villains" as in other movies that I have seen, they are just ordinary people trying to survive. I would say this movie is even better than "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "The Deer Hunter" and that's saying something. If you have the chance to see it, please go and see it, I am not exaggerating at all.
