Lorenzo's Oil is a 1992 American drama film directed and co-written by George Miller. It is based on the true story of Augusto and Michaela Odone, parents who search for a cure for their son Lorenzo's adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), leading to the development of Lorenzo's oil. The film was shot in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, primarily from September 1991 to February 1992.[3] It had a limited release in North America on December 30, 1992, with a nationwide release two weeks later, on January 15, 1993. Though it was a box office disappointment, grossing $7.2 million against its $30 million budget, the film was generally well received by the critics and garnered two nominations at the 65th Academy Awards.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times gave the film four out of four stars and called it an "immensely moving and challenging movie", adding that "it was impossible not to get swept up in it."[6] James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave it three out of four stars and claimed, "it was about the war for knowledge and the victory of hope through perseverance."[7]

Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes retrospectively collected reviews from 39 critics to give the film a score of 92%, with an average rating of 7.10/10, as of September 2020[update]. The website's consensus reads, "A harrowing tribute to the heroism of parental love, Lorenzo's Oil is kept from abject misery by George Miller's sensitive direction and outstanding performances from Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon."[8] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 80 out of 100, based on 21 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[9] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film a grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale.[10]

Though the film seemed to accurately portray the events related to the boy's condition and his parents' efforts during the time period covered by the film, it was criticized for falsely painting a picture of a miracle cure.[11] Subsequent research with Lorenzo's oil has not clearly proven its long-term effectiveness in treating ALD after its onset.[12] The actual subject of the film, Lorenzo Odone, died of pneumonia in May 2008 at the age of 30, having lived two decades longer than originally predicted by doctors.[13]

Straight-talking Australian cinematographer John Seale has worked on many of the most influential Hollywood movies of the 1980s and 1990s, and is noted for his collaborations with director Peter Weir, whom he met while working with cinematographer Russell Boyd on Picnic at Hanging Rock. The greatest moment of his career so far came in 1997 when he won the Best Cinematography Oscar for The English Patient, but he has received awards and nominations for his work from film institutions around the world, including Oscar nominations for Rain Man and Witness. Seale is praised in particular for his realistic use of light, and his most impressive work tends to be in the photographing of large-scale landscapes and brightly lit outdoor locations.

After learning his craft as a camera operator during the 1970s Seale began working as a cinematographer in a cinematic tradition that seemed intent on exploring Australia's landscape and past. Goodbye Paradise, Carl Schultz's clever parody of the private eye movie genre, which comments on the migratory habits of Australia's senior citizens, is also notable for its images of Queensland, while Careful, He Might Hear You sets the individual's struggle for self-definition against an Australian past of struggle and adversity. In both these very different films, the landscape encroaches on the narrative, and it is perhaps because of these early projects that Seale's best work, such as The English Patient, and Gorillas in the Mist, tends to be on films that explore the relationship between people and their surroundings.

Seale moved to Hollywood with Weir to make the thriller Witness, and has been a regular collaborator with the director on films as diverse as The Mosquito Coast and Dead Poets Society. Although Seale remains committed to the development of Australian cinema, his output since the late 1980s has largely originated, even if it has not always been filmed, in America. Dead Poets Society in particular is vividly American in its attachment to Romantic individualism, and its fascination with the verdant grounds of the New England school in which the film is set. Other films, like Rain Man, and The Firm (both Tom Cruise vehicles) are resolutely Hollywood in their look and story lines.

Like many Australian filmmakers who work outside the Australian film industry, Seale seems happy to travel widely to film on location, and work in other countries. Many of his most successful films have been filmed in remote locations, such as the rain forests of South America (The Mosquito Coast), Burma (Beyond Rangoon), or Africa (Gorillas in the Mist). Capturing landscapes successfully on film is among the most difficult tasks for the cinematographer, yet Seale manages to convey the vastness of these settings without overwhelming the smaller scale human action on which the film narratives depend. His most recent successful collaborations with British filmmaker Anthony Minghella, The English Patient and The Talented Mr Ripley, both exploit Seale's talent for filming real places in a convincing and realistic way. In the case of The Talented MrRipley, Seale preferred to film the tale of Tom Ripley's dark subconscious in glorious sunshine, the beauty of Italy contrasting jaggedly with the horror of the human story played out there.

Seale has so far made only one foray into directing, making his own first feature as director, Till There Was You in Australia. The film fits in with the themes of movies he has worked on as cinematographer; namely, the urge to define personal identity in a landscape and tradition that seems overwhelming and mysterious. Although he has travelled widely, Seale prefers to be at home, recently exploiting film's increasing digitization to do the post-production work on The Perfect Storm by satellite from his home in Sydney.

"Si rimane di solito perplessi davanti a un film che s'immerge nei particolari di una malattia. Punti dal sospetto d'una strumentazione strappalacrime adatta agli incassi, ma poco rispettosa all'immagine del dolore vero. Sono sospetti infondati da quando il cinema americano, con "I figli di un dio minore" e "Rain man", presenta i malati senza sentimentalismi seguendo come "L'olio di Lorenzo", un caso clinico scaturito da una storia vera, quella di Lorenzo Odone, bambino colpito da adrenoleucodistrofia (ALD), una rara malattia ereditaria praticamente incurabile." (Alfio Cantelli, Il Giornale)"L'opera è di buon livello, e soprattutto possiede alti valori morali."(Segnalazioni cinematografiche, vol. 115, 1992)

The exhibition also includes a film "cameo". In an effort to highlight the deep bond of friendship linking Aretino to Giovanni dalle Bande Nere, visitors will be able to watch segments of "The Profession of Arms", the film that Ermanno Olmi devoted to the figure of the great Medici mercenary captain, in which Aretino, played by Sasa Vulicevic, is not just the offscreen narrator but also appears in many scenes.

The forte form takes on particular importance in the sentence, having an accent of its own.The debole form, as the word says, has no prior accent.This last form, also called "particella pronominale" and "pronome clitico" is used only for the complemento oggetto(which answers the question Chi "Who" for an individual and Che cosa "What" for an object) and complemento di termine (a chi "to whom", a che cosa "to what").Ci venga a trovare "Venga a trovare", Who We (CI)Ti consiglio di vedere questo filmConsiglio a chi to whom to you (TI)In practice, with the Forte form, we want to emphasize the pronoun."Per quell'incarico hanno scelto me"(the Forte form has an exclusive value to me: the speaker emphasizes that he was preferred to others).If instead you want to have a purely informative tone, use the Debole form."Mi hanno scelto per quell'incarico." 153554b96e
