01 Distribution, RAI Cinema's distribution arm, has recorded a market share of more than 12% this season, confirming an average of 10-13% over the last few years. A share that has brought in €70 million in revenue and 10-11 million viewers, who are mainly opting for Italian cinema. "An important fact that suggests, and in some sense requires us, to continue along the same path," comments Paolo Del Brocco, CEO of RAI Cinema, who presented 01's line-up at Torino Film Festival. "A line-up that's once again been built on variety and quality, consisting essentially of films by great directors, talented newcomers and a few selected international titles, which will allow us to converse with various market segments."
During its nine years under Del Brocco’s guidance, RAI Cinema has co-produced 530 films, of which only 12% have been comedies. Some of the names that have contributed to the Italian film industry are Sydney Sibilia, Matteo Rovere, Pif, Giancarlo Fontana and Giuseppe Stasi, Valerio Mastandrea, the Manetti Bros – whose next film will be about the famous cartoon character Diabolik – and master of the graphic novel, Igort.
Igort's film, entitled 5 è il numero perfetto (from the eponymous graphic novel), is an Italian, Belgian and French co-production. Starring in this small Neapolitan tale set in 1970s Italy are Toni Servillo, Valeria Golino and Carlo Buccirosso.
"One of the line-up's predominant features is undoubtedly its variety and mixture of genres. Some directors like to play with the rules of pure genre at close range." Modalità aereo [+lee también:

"And then we also have some directors who like to use the key aspects and languages of genre film." Gabriele Muccino is backwith I migliori anni, Francesca Archibugi, herself a master in conveying feelings, with Vivere, an intense family drama (news), and Gabriele Salvatores with a new on-the-road film entitled Se ti abbraccio non aver paura, which tells the story of a father and son and touches on the themes of discomfort and disability."
All of the auteur directors have made choices that curiously unite them. "Marco Bellocchio, Matteo Garrone, Gianni Amelio and Mario Martone have all chosen to focus on true stories, historical figures, real events or universal stories known all over the world in a totally personal way." Which is what Marco Bellocchio has donewith Il traditore (news), Matteo Garrone with Pinocchio, Gianni Amelio with Hammamet and Mario Martone with Capri – Revolution [+lee también:
