Film Notes

Lucio D’Ambra, a fashionable journalist, playwright and dandy, also directed and produced a number of films. The mixture of heady symbolism and flower-bedecked operetta in the first three reels of his Carnevalesca looks dated today, but the film is redeemed by Lyda Borelli’s magnificent solo in the final part. We have included this part officially in the 1918 strand; the complete film is scheduled for the evening slot. (It was screened at the Cinema Ritrovato for the first and last time in 1993)
