More Info

Scholarly interest in issues of national identity and representation has been increasing for years, and cinema is a major resource for that work, as it allows for cross-cultural dialogue and the portrayal of different layers of representation and cultural stereotypes. "Beauty and the Beast "takes a look at the depictions of Italy and the Italians in British cinema.

Elisabetta Girelli draws upon cultural and social history to assess the ongoing representation of "Italianness" in British film, and its crucial role in defining and challenging British national identity. Girelli provides an original survey of archival material such as World War II footage, and an analysis of significant British films like "Summer Madness "and "A Room With A View." Drawing on British literary and filmic tradition to analyze the rise of specific images of the Italian other, "Beauty and the Beast" is a noteworthy and unique contribution to film and cultural studies.
