While joining us last summer for our retrospective The Other Side: The Films of Roberto Minervini, the acclaimed Italian-born director shared his thoughts on his great countrywoman Anna Magnani, whom he says "embodies the melodrama that is inherent in Italian culture."

The TIFF Cinematheque retrospective Volcano: The Films of Anna Magnani runs January 27 to March 11.
