that's why my production company is called Sacher, for the Austrian pastry." (He operates a movie theater in Rome with the same name.) Though there is, in fact, very little of Italian politics in his new film, Mr. Moretti tends to become most animated when discussing the new Italian Government, which is headed by the media mogul Silvio Berlusconi. Predictably, as a lapsed Communist, Mr. Moretti believes that the right-wing Berlusconi Government is illegitimate. When asked to explain a sequence in "Caro Diario" in which he is searching for a monument where the Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered, Mr. Moretti, sounding like one of the characters he plays, casts his response in a political light. "That scene makes me relive the feeling I had when I finally got there," he says, "because it's just a tiny little monument, eaten by the wind and the sea, which can barely be seen. In Italy, there is a big problem with memory. Right now they're talking about Fascism as though it was something that happened in another country."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
