Film Song of the Day: Anna (El Negro Zumbon) by Silvana Mangano

Cinema ParidisoThis fantastic song appears in Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paridiso, the story of a young boys journey through his formative years, and the role the local cinema plays in influencing his life.  The song features half way through the film, in a scene set in the cinema: as a huge crowd stares up at Silvana Mangano in Anna – a film within a film. See the iconic original clip below

About Richard Lennox

I started Filmoria in 2010, simply because I love films and I wanted to write about them. Movies have been formative in my life, and I hope they will continue to do so for many years to come. Now, I'm a father, and I can't wait to share my adventures through film, classics and new, with my daughter. I'm extremely thankful for the many, many wonderful opportunities that writing this site has brought me. And, thank you everyone who has helped me make this website what it is.
