LIKE A CAT ON A HIGHWAY
COME UN GATTO IN TANGENZIALE
2017, True Colors, 98 min, Italy, Dir: Riccardo Milani

The lifespan of a teen romance may be as short as that of a cat on a highway, but it’s long enough to spark this hilarious and affecting look at love across class boundaries. When a young man and woman get engaged in Rome, it fosters an unusual friendship between the daughter’s rich father (Antonio Albanese) and the son’s poor mother (Paola Cortellesi). This delightful crowd-pleaser won Nastro d’Argento awards for Best Comedy Film and for the lead performances of Albanese and Cortellesi.

NAPLES IN VEILS
NAPOLI VELATA
2017, True Colors, 113 min, Italy, Dir: Ferzan Ozpetek

This enigmatic, intricately plotted thriller stars Giovanna Mezzogiorno as Adriana, a medical examiner who falls for a guy (Alessandro Borghi) at a party only to discover his corpse at the mortuary days later. As the police begin to focus on her, Adriana spots the young man in the subway - is it a ghost, or something else? Adding to the atmosphere are Gian Filippo Corticelli’s lush cinematography and Pasquale Catalano’s evocative soundtrack - the film’s titular city rarely seemed more beautiful, or mysterious, on screen.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
