CCR Film Talk with Olivia: "I Soliti Ignoti" - December 11, 2014

A fun potluck night together, looking at excerpts from one of the greatest films, rightly deserving to be among those which helped shape Italian identity between 1942 and 1978. "I Soliti Ignoti" received an Oscar (1959) and spawned a remake in English titled "Big Deal on Madonna Street." This highly acclaimed film by director Mario Monicelli starred some the greatest Italian actors of the time and is still considered a masterpiece of its kind, uncannily immersed in its own period and yet showing a tragic and ironic side which transcends its historical context. This Italian film with English subtitles will be shown in excerpts, with a break for refreshments.

Please confirm what you will be preparing for the potluck with Peter or Olivia when you reserve.
