Description With over 10 million copies of her "Neapolitan Novels" sold in over 50 countries, Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. She was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World and HBO recently turned the first book in the quartet, My Brilliant Friend, into a subtitled miniseries hit with more seasons to come. A journey between New York City's cultural hub and Ferrante's native Italy, the film explores how an anonymous author's visceral tales of love and friendship gained such an enthusiastic following. Hillary Clinton, Roberto Saviano, Jonathan Franzen and others weigh-in on the Ferrante "craze" and what makes her work--and her mysterious persona--so uniquely captivating.

I was skeptical about the documentary as a student, because I have never really been interested in the subject of Beatni's work. My first introduction to it was actually the "Tears of '76" soundtrack, which is pretty much all I knew about Beatni and it really opened my eyes to his music. So I decided to give it a chance and it was really refreshing and I really learned a lot. The documentary follows Beatni as he releases a new album and they are all just amazing songs that are just great to hear. Some of the songs are new to me, but that's really not a bad thing as I think some of the songs are timeless. However, the interview sessions that Beatni has with some of his most famous contemporaries, like Dreyfus, Van Dyke Parks, and Stevie Wonder, are pretty amazing, as they give him a better insight into his work than just listening to him perform. The interviews are actually pretty well done and it was also great to see some of his family and friends that he has made music with. I also was happy that we actually got to see some of his albums, like "Nostalgia", "Honey," and "All Is Fair In Love And War" (which is still one of my favorite songs). This documentary is one of the best documentaries that I've seen in a while. It's really a great example of what great music is and what great music can do. I also think that it's very interesting that Beatni released all these albums with no warning at all because he wanted to make a statement with these albums and in doing so he has also become a symbol of resistance. So in that sense it's an important documentary because of how important music is in this day and age.

The film takes us to see the lives of the Xavi family - father, mother, and sister. It is interesting to see how they are able to live their lives, even though they have been divided into two different worlds. There are many different stories told throughout the film, and each is unique. For example, the sisters' lives are split up into two different phases. When the father is in love with someone else, he is separated from the family. When he has to fulfill his role as a father, he is separated from the family. When his sister is looking for her soul mate, she ends up marrying a man she doesn't like. The story's highlight is when the brothers must stay away from their mother while she is in the hospital. The families' lives are obviously complicated, but it also shows how this family comes from nothing to the center of the world. Also, the film makes you realize how much life revolves around the family. It gives you the feeling that everything in your life is just a function of the family's welfare. The Xavi family is very well portrayed. It is interesting to see how each family member shows different traits. Each family member knows his role in the family, and it shows you that sometimes you have to do things that your family doesn't approve of. In one scene, when the sisters' mother orders them to live in the basement, they refuse and want to stay in the main house. But when they learn that their mother is dying, the sisters both have to do what their mother would want. It is also interesting to see how the Xavi family keeps their family together through hardship. When the sisters go on a trip, their mother doesn't want them to go. When they decide to give up on a doctor, their father doesn't allow it. When they lose their house and everything they've worked for, they don't care. When their father loses his job, the brothers accept that. But, when their mother gets ill, they don't give up. It shows that there is always someone to turn to and help out when your family is down. I liked the film very much because I like this kind of film. I really loved it. It's very interesting to see how the world revolves around the family. I really liked the main point of the film, and it's really good to see how life is like for these people.

This documentary about Fernanella Fabiani's life is really interesting and entertaining. I'm a bit more interested in the movie, and what this woman is doing with her life than what she has become. I think it's interesting that a woman of this era would decide to be so fussy about her image, that she would want to do things that would really hinder her life. So her image might be the thing that she wants to stay in her image. As a result, she'd end up being more of a pain in the ass. I'm sure it's not her fault, that her mother had a very strict attitude, in regards to her image. She did not see it as a flaw that her mother was like that. I think there's something different between women that want to keep the image, and women that do not. If the former want to keep the image, they're much more affected by the opinion of the people that they are in contact with, rather than their own self. For Fernanella, she became much more involved with her image than she wanted. I think her mother was probably much more affected by it, that's why she ended up being more of a pain in the ass. There's something weird about this documentary. I was hoping for more of the interview, but there wasn't much of it. She'd talk about her family, and her mother's comment on her. In other words, she wouldn't talk too much about the people that are in her life. So the documentary seemed a bit slow. I think it's better to talk about the people that Fernanella was in contact with, and about the ones that were affected by her. A lot of people thought that Fernanella was obsessed with her image, but I think that's probably a pretty extreme way to look at her. She was a woman that took pleasure from her image, and wanted it to be the best image she could. I think she was much more intelligent than people think, and that might be why she was so fussy about her image. I think Fernanella would like the idea of how she looked, more than what it is now, or what it should be. I think Fernanella, in the sense of that she was very driven by her image, wanted to be that image. This isn't a great documentary. It's very slow, and there's not much in it. I'm not sure if I'd recommend it.
