THE eighth edition of Cinema Made In Italy will launch at the Ciné Lumière in South Kensington on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

Paolo Taviani’s World War II drama Rainbow (Una Questione Privata), starring Luca Marinelli and Valentina Bellé, will open the five-day event.

In addition to eight new Italian productions, the 2018 programme also includes the 1977 classic title A Special Day (Una Giornata Particolare), directed by the late maestro Ettore Scola and starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.

Other titles in the line-up which premiered in Venice are the wildly enjoyable musical Love And Bullets (Ammore e Malavita) (pictured) by Antonio and Marco Manetti; the slick and creative animation film Cinderella The Cat (Gatta Cenerentola) by Alessandro Rak; and Sebastiano Riso’s impressive second feature Una Famiglia.

Leonardo di Costanzo, who presented his award-winning film The Interval in London in 2012, will be making a welcome return with his latest feature, The Intruder (L’Intrusa), which screened in Directors’ Fortnight at last year’s Cannes International Film Festival. To celebrate, we have a pair of tickets up for grabs for the screening on Saturday, March 10 at 6.30pm.

About The Intruder

Raffaella Giordano delivers a powerful performance as an idealistic social worker who runs a children’s centre in a dilapidated suburb in Naples. Her mission is to offer a safe haven for each and every child in need, but her morals are put to the test when it becomes apparent that one of the latest additions to her brood is the daughter of a notorious Mafia enforcer on the run.

Presented at Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes last year, Leonardo Di Costanzo’s second feature is a gritty, heartfelt tale which succeeds in pulling off the delicate balancing act of offering social commentary without feeling preachy.
