The story was adapted from Ettore Scola's film Passione d'Amore. Passion is notable for being one of the few projects that Stephen Sondheim himself conceived, along with Sweeney Todd and Road Show.

Film Forum is pleased to present the U.S. theatrical premiere of PASSIONE, directed by and featuring John Turturro. This wild, colorful, sexy ode to the music and people of Naples, was 'rapturously received' (Variety) and interrupted by 'spontaneous outbreaks of applause' (Sight + Sound Magazine) in Italy, where it played for more than four months (its soundtrack on the charts for five). A brilliant actor in film, theater, and television, Turturro is also the director of three features (including the hilarious, irreverent ROMANCE & CIGARETTES, which premiered in 2007 at Film Forum) and a man whose talents are fueled by an unquenchable zest for life. He describes his new film as 'a musical adventure that comes directly out of the people and the volcanic land they inhabit. Conjuring ancient stories and myths that still live - of love, sex, jealousy, and social protest - each song is a small screenplay, an emotional postcard. I tried to see if I could understand in a small way, a little bit of the soul of the city, while at the same time killing clichés about it. There are places you go and once is enough. Then, there's Napoli.'

Today, we present the final section of the Sondheim Palooza for this week with a discussion of Sondheim's work in the last two decades.
