AN ITALIAN NAME
IL NOME DEL FIGLIO
2015, Films Distribution, 94 min, Italy, Dir: Francesca Archibugi

Based on the recent French film WHAT’S IN A NAME?, this boisterous comedy starts simply enough, at a dinner party where soon-to-be parents Alessandro Gassmann and Micaela Ramazzotti (both Nastro d'Argento winners) hope to enjoy an evening with some old friends (Valeria Golino, Luigi Lo Cascio and Rocco Papaleo). But all hell breaks loose when the subject of the child’s name is broached. In Italian with English subtitles.


THOSE HAPPY YEARS
ANNI FELICI
2013, Celluloid Dreams, 101 min, Italy, Dir: Daniele Luchetti

Guido (Kim Rossi Stuart) is too self-centered to see that his wife (Micaela Ramazzotti) is upset about all the time he spends with beautiful women in his studio. So it’s a rude awakening when she leaves the narcissistic artist for a “feminist retreat” - right after his big Milan gallery show has gone horribly wrong. In Italian with English subtitles.
