The “Dizionario dei Film” (Italian for: “Dictionary of Films”) – written and updated on a year-by-year basis by Laura, Luisa and Morando Morandini – is one of the highest-praised collection of film-reviews in Italy. Its purpose is to give the readers a short summary and a brief critical view for every film ever shown in our Country (even if available just on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.). Currently, about 27’000 films are reviewed on it.

At the end of every article, there is a star-based rating, which works like this: * (one star), * 1/2 (one star and a half), * * (two stars), * * 1/2 (two stars and a half), * * * (three stars), * * * 1/2 (three stars and a half), * * * * (four stars), * * * * * (five stars).

The four-star rating is generally given to film regarded as masterpieces, while the five-star rating is assigned to those films that are considered to be fundamental in the history of cinema or that represent the highest achievement of a great director.
