Time 20:30
Date 09/07/18
Price £13

A dreamlike comedy/drama set in an “imaginary” Sicily, where a famous director becomes embroiled in filming the wedding of a rich man’s beautiful daughter.

Famous director Franco Elica (played sublimely by the wonderful Castellitto) flees from scandal in Rome to Sicily, and becomes embroiled in filming the wedding of a rich man’s beautiful daughter. Bellocchio is at his most satirical and playful with this movie-within-a-movie, which also offers a brilliant deliberation on the art of cinema and the profession of filmmaking.

Plus, watch The Fight (La lotta), Bellocchio's new short, based on a Bulgarian poem that looks back at WWII.
