Case study

Youth

This is the second film written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino to be included in the corpus. As well as several other matches with various criteria (like Sorrentino’s other film, La grande bellezza), Youth was also included here because it appears in the top five admissions of Italian film in all the sample countries. This case is also interesting because it was produced by Italian companies but has primarily English-language dialogue.
