Synopsis:
He cut his teeth as an assistant on some of the greatest films in cinema history: Visconti's Obsession, Rossellini's Rome, Open City De Sica's Bicycle Thieves. His eye for black-and-white film was masterful, but it was his innovations in colour with Antonioni's Red Desert and Blow-Up, in the mid-1960s, that set him apart as a genius of the medium.

Film buff heaven - Water and Sugar: Carlo Di Palma, the Colours of Life review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
15/09/2020

A warm-hearted documentary about the great Italian cinemaphotographer Carlo di Palma, from his early work in post-war monochrome neorealism, through his contributions to the great Antonioni films such as Red Desert and Blow-up, to the dozen films he made with Woody Allen. With contributions from lots of famous directors and loads of film clips, this is a treasure trove for anyone interested in film. As di Palma himself says : ‘Life is less beautiful without a good film.’
