Though i don't like italian movies so much, you can watch " Notte Prima Degli Esami " ( The Night Before The Exams )
That's a funny movie. It talks about a bunch of boys who have to face their final exam in Italian high-school ( Esame Di Stato ).
It's set in 1989; but it was made in 2005.

e

El Alemain (In the line of fire)...un racconto di una battaglia della guerra mondiale II

I agree with Johnny Stecchino. Il postino is nice, but everybody has it and how many times can you watch it? I'd say the same about all the Fellini and Antonioni films, and everything by Troisi and Benigni. Cinema paradiso is held in generally high esteem, I do not believe I could sit through a second showing.

I vote for the box sets of Montalbano mysteries.

Each is five full length terrific, rotolando per terra ridendo da morire sto veramente male mystery/comedy movies for thirty bucks, how can you beat that? You need a region-free dvd player, which is no more expensive than a regular one. Buy online, stores do not have them.

I see a third box set, dated 2005, that I have never seen offered before. Four Montalbano movies that I don't have for a little more, $50, I'm ordering tonight.

Camilleri is one of the VERY few modern Italian writers available in English translation.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=pd_sc_1?ie= ... =camilleri

I didn't look this time, but I believe some are available from (our American) Amazon.com in Italian too. Ibs.it has them of course.

When somebody tells you how great Satyricon or La Strada is, tell them to go climb a rope, JMHO.
Per piacere, correggete i miei errori in italiano. Grazie mille in anticipo.

There are other Italian authors whose works have been translated into English:

Leonardo Sciascia
Natalia Ginzburg
Pier Vittorio Tondelli
Alberto Moravia
Italo Calvino
Umberto Eco
Dante
Most works from the Vatican are generally written first in Italian and then translated, if one finds those things interesting.

There are others but I can't think of them right now. I can list specific works if need be, but you can probably find them on Amazon or Worldcat.

Here's a list of other works that have been translated:

If you have the patience, you can watch region free movies on your pc. You'll just have change the region and leave it that way - most manufacturers will let you change the region 4 or 5 times before it comes 'stuck' so don't change it too many times, but once you set it, it'll stay until you change it. I have an internal dvd-rom drive for my laptop(which I bought for $60 on Ebay) that I have set for the Italian region. I just switch it out with my USA region drive if/when I want to watch an American regioned movie, but then I usually just use the tv for that.

If you can watch films without subtitles, I would suggest watching 'Un sacco bello' -- it's strange but funny. I don't want to talk about it too much or I might ruin the story. It stars Carlo Verdone who also directed the film.

My favorite film is 'Le notti di Cabiria' - I've seen it 100 times. It's an old film though - it might not be what you're looking for.

Povera Cabiria! Che bella figura triste, ma non crolla mai. Continua con la innocenza e la speranza di una bambina.
