This weekend don't miss
through November 18, 2012 at the Aero Theatre

Cinema Italian Style, the annual celebration of Italian cinema, continues this weekend with Daniele Vicari's hard-hitting procedural expose DIAZ: DON'T CLEAN UP THIS BLOOD,the true story of the police assault at the Genoa G8 summit; Carlo Verdone's sharp comedy A FLAT FOR THREE, starring the director as one of three divorced buddies (with Pierfrancesco Favino and Marco Giallini) who make the dubious decision to move in together; Giuliano Montaldo's THE ENTREPRENEUR, a bleak, elegant portrayal of the 1% upper class struggling to maintain its security in the face of a crumbling Turin, starring Pierfrancesco Favino, Carolina Crescentini and Francesco Scianna; Pupi Avati's wonder-filled, 1930s-set romance THE BIG HEART OF GIRLS, starring Alessandro Haber, Cesare Cremonini, Micaela Ramazzotti and Isabelle Adriani; Roan Johnson's paranoid, 1970s-set comedy THE FIRST ON THE LIST, centering on a trio of bumbling leftist students (Francesco Turbanti, Paolo Cioni, Claudio Santamaria) so convinced that a terrorist attack is nigh that they flee across the Austrian border; and Ferzan Ozpetek's charmingly strange comedic drama MAGNIFICA PRESENZA, starring Elio Germano as a gay pastry chef visited in his new Rome apartment by a former theater troupe of dramatic, hand-wringing ghosts (led by Giuseppe Fiorello and Margherita Buy).

All films in Italian with English subtitles.
Series compiled by Laura Delli Colli, Camilla Cormanni and Gwen Deglise.
