Ieri, oggi, domani (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow)

Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the 1964 Academy Awards, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is a sparklingly original comedy that casts Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren in three different stories set throughout Italy.

In Naples, they are poor but resourceful, selling black market cigarettes on the streets. In Milan, Loren is costumed in Christian Dior and debates her preference for a Rolls Royce or her husband. And in Rome, Mastroianni is an industry scion who helps Loren’s prostitute set a wavering priest back onto the spiritual plane. This episode features Sophia’s famous striptease, which was recreated 30 years later in Robert Altman’s Ready To Wear. Witty and unforgettable, this gem from master filmmaker Vittorio de Sica (Two Women, Marriage Italian Style) is picture-postcard beautiful and effortlessly hilarious.

VITTORIO DE SICA

Born in 1901, De Sica grew up in poverty in Napoli. As a young man, he worked as an office clerk to help support his family, but he soon discovered that acting was a more satisfying escape from the drudgery of youth. Dashingly handsome, he began his career as a leading man on the stage and then in black-and-white romantic comedies. Think: the Cary Grant of the Mediterranean.

However, as World War II came to an end and Italy underwent a social revolution, De Sica’s interests turned to the other side of the camera. The transformation began when he met screenwriter Cesare Zavattini, a leader in the Italian Neorealist movement. Free of political pressures for the first time, artists were able to explore Italy’s social order, delving into the stark dichotomy of poverty and wealth typical to the time.

De Sica and Zavattini began an important artistic collaboration that yielded a number of classic neorealistic films, including the Academy Award-winning Ladri di Biciclette (Bicycle Thieves), Sciuscià (Shoeshine), and many more. Today, De Sica's films are known for their heart-rending insight into the beauty, tragedy, and comedy of the human condition. 

Vittorio De Sica directed 34 feature films for which he won numerous international prizes. He was honored with four Academy Awards: two Special Awards, preceding the creation of the Best Foreign Film category, for “Shoeshine” in 1947, and “The Bicycle Thief” in 1949, and Best Foreign Film Awards for “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” in 1964, and The Garden of the Finzi-Continis in 1971.
