Editorial Reviews

Lo scenario di base della sceneggiata napoletana è il vicolo ed è esattamente in esterni, sulla strada e nelle piazze che si svolge Passione, il documentario musicale di John Turturro sulla relazione ardente tra Napoli e le sue canzoni. Regista di un cinema sofisticato (e istruito) con un'anima radicalmente popolare, Turturro ancora una volta va al cuore delle cose esprimendo la sua incontenibile "passione" per la musica dopo Illuminata e Romance and Cigarettes.

Have not been able to play the DVD due to the region code being different in the US.

A glorious film of wonderful music. Really exciting. I have watched it a number of times already and am eagerly awaiting the soundtrack CD. It has opened up a fabulous new world for me. I have the Italian DVD and I can't wait for an English subtitled version to come out now as I would love to know more about what is being sung and said. And I would love it to have a director's commentary too. And maybe some extra numbers? Thank you so much John Turturro for this magnificent movie.

It has been a very long time, if at all, since I have watched a film that brings so much expression, ethnic diversity, and just plain, child-like fun. The artists are so authentic, and so in love with what they do; the photography and locations are a perfect backdrop to the lucious, voluptuous, soulful exuberance of a people and a place. Italy, for all its faults, is still the place to feel wholly in love with life; the food, music, and eroticism is joyous. Thank you to all who give such pleasure and playfulness. I carry this music around in my soul.

I loved this film. The passion of John Turturro lights up the screen. The music, personalities, and interviews are all deserving of this title. I've watched it a number of times and still have the desire to see it again. John T. says at the beginning, "Soon you'll be singing these songs," and sure enough I keep going back to hear them again.

(translation: Neapolitans know how to survive)
John Turturro has made a film that captures what he accurately identifies as the "emotional transportation" of la musica di Napoli.
In addition to Turturro's own quietly brilliant narration, it was stunning to see that Peppe Barra has retained his authenticity and eloquence.
Every performer is outstanding. The film is a gem.
Thank you so very much.

When ordering this DVD from Amazon I probably missed the remark that there are no English subtitles. Had I read it, I would have refrained from ordering.

Why? It't the music that counts, you'll argue. True, to a certain extend. But I wish to understand what the songs are about, and subtitles in Italian don't help much. Strangely enough the narration (on screen) by Turturro himself are in English.

So no, I'm not satisfied with this item the way it has been marketed. Yet I will refrain from lodging a complaint, seeing how other customers, who had the same complaint, have tried in vain to get a refund from distributor Veco.

Am I disappointed? Yes, certainly.

This is a vastly enjoyable movie. It's a kind of documentary, but you wouldn't think it. John Tutturo is clearly passionate about the culture that produced this rich and varied smorgasbord of song and music, and it infuses the whole production. The diversity of representations, visual as well as musical, is inspiring. We first saw this in a film festival, and were able enrich our grasp of the content because the song lyrics were subtitled in English. Not so with this DVD. If you don't speak Italian, the subtitles (which translate the Neapolitan dialect into standard Italian) won't help much. I admit I'm annoyed that this isn't made clear in the dvd info. Like another reviewer, I'd love to see the English subtitled version, anytime soon.

This movie, by John Turturro, is a great documentary about the way the Neapolitan life was, and to some extend still is, in and around Naples. As a young man I lived near Naples for sixteen years before migrating to the US, and I can tell you that it's all so true. I even learned things I had not known before by watching and listening to this movie. Mr. Turturro has done a great job in documenting the lives of some "Napoletani" through the various songs and music of yesteryears. Kudos.

This documentary is about the culture of music in Naples (Italy). It's about love, it's about hate, happiness and sadness... all mixed trough the music in the Naples. The city is amazing old and rich of culture.
