[473] Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow article in Film International 9.2

I woke up this morning and realised that I've not seen a film - either in the cinema or on DVD - since the very beginning of the month. Three weeks ago, actually. The last one was Beginners, which I've since reviewed for Little White Lies. Since then, the days have passed in a haze of anxiety, university work and Behind The Bytes. Films have fallen by the wayside, as has seemingly most of my written work. A weird month.

So I was surprised that the latest issue of Film International fell through my letterbox, and it contained a piece I wrote almost two years ago, about the Vittorio De Sica anthology film Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Ieri, oggi, domani). It stars Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren as lovers in three separate short films, set in three different Italian cities. I thought it was quite an overlooked gem.

The piece itself is a little clunky; it was back when I had a real affection for tricolons and overburdened sentences, where I'd throw down dashes and keep adding extra points because I was so goddamned serious and excitable. That said, however, it's great to finally see it in print.




I've yet to delve into the issue, but I have already earmarked a piece by guest editor Pietari Kääpä titled 'Born American? Renny Harlin and Global Hollywood', which sounds fascinating.

You can pick up Film International from selected film-specialist shops, such as (I think) the BFI Southbank, The ICA, and The Cornerhouse. Otherwise, you can order it online here.
