There are some recent Italian films that are going in a new direction. Good quality films with an eye on market.

You know what I think? Dramas, poetic comedy- dramas à la Beningni’s Life Is Beautiful and films with the last TV-comedian in the leading role are not enough. It’s time for something different.

Recently some Italian directors are finally experimenting an Italian way to other genres: science fiction (like They call me Jeeg) and action movies.

Among these I would place Veloce come il vento, also known with the international title Italian Race. Here’s the trailer in Italian. This is the first motor race movie among recent Italian films I remember. Actually, I think it’s the only motor race Italian film ever.
