Double Feature:
LIKE A CAT ON A HIGHWAY (COME UN GATTO IN TANGENZIALE), 2017, True Colors, 98 min. 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. In Italian with English subtitles.
NAPLES IN VEILS (NAPOLI VELATA), 2017, True Colors, 113 min. 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. In Italian with English subtitles. Program begins with a short from the Cinema Italian Style student short film contest.
