  1. 1. Excellent site for biodata on black actors, with precise details on original nationality etc.
    2. But I couldn’t locate any separate information on the films mentioned. Of course, this information would be too difficult a task with movies where actors only have bit parts. But if the films are mainly/preponderantly ‘black’ in theme etc., a sub-site featuring summaries of films would be useful.
    3. In the film listings, production companies are given, but the BASIC detail of run-time in minutes is missing. Also, it should be made formally clear that each film listed is ‘Italy’ in provenance/financing – plus other countries if co-productions.
    4. The English is generally competent and idiomatically correct – but there are also many conspicuous elementary errors (even confusions of gender with pronouns: e.g., ‘his’ for female actors) which need to be corrected. (Incorrect English undermines the website’s authority.) ;-)

    • Dear colleague, thanks a lot for your appreciation and suggestions. Just a brief reply. Cinemafrodiscendente is a blog that, after a first phase, I’m running personally by myself. I honestly don’t think there is a major need for more information on each film mentioned in the database. Apart from IMDb, there are already websites such as Archivio del cinema italiano, run by Anica (http://www.archiviodelcinemaitaliano.it/), or Cinedatabase, by Ente dello Spettacolo (http://www.cinematografo.it/cinedatabase/), very rich and complete with any kind of information. For more recent films, consider also http://www.cinemaitaliano.info and http://www.filmitalia.org. I guess that anyone reading this blog is enough aware that each film mentioned is ITALIAN, that is produced or co-produced by an Italian society; if this is not, I will find a way to make it formally even more clear. Our English follows a ELF standard, and with some exceptions, each post was written without an English mother tongue reviewer: I am perfectly aware that here and there it is possible to find some errors. I would really appreciate if you or other readers would take some time to signal the posts where these errors are located. Best, Leonardo
