Passione

Rated NR 90 minutes 2011

Actor-turned-filmmaker John Turturro had the bright idea to do for Naples, Italy what Buena Vista Social Club did for Havana, Cuba, and this nifty documentary pulls it off with a maximum of style. The feisty Neapolitan people and the city’s glorious, crumbling scenery tell their own stories (we wish there were more) but Turturro focuses on the music – by folkloric guitarist Fausto Cigliano, Arab-Italian singer M’Barka Ben Taleb, classic old-time performers such as Massimo Ranieri and Angela Luce, and many more. Like pasta, he throws it on the wall and some of it sticks. Narrated by Turturro. (90 min.)
