WE BELIEVED
NOI CREDEVAMO
2011, Rai Trade, 120 min, Italy, Dir: Mario Martone

With this recently re-cut version from his original 2010 epic, director Mario Martone's (NASTY LOVE, DEATH OF A NEAPOLITAN MATHEMATICIAN) historical mythbuster follows the real events surrounding Italy's unification in the 19th century, from the nation's stormy birth in the 1820s to its solidification in the 1870s. Edoardo Natoli and Andrea Bosca star as Domenico and Angelo, two commoners loosely based on minor historical figures from the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies who dream of a unified Italy. Over the course of decades, the two transform into very different types of revolutionaries - Domenico siding with the populist movement, with Angelo becoming a violent nihilist willing to murder friends and enemies. With Luigi Lo Cascio (THE BEST OF YOUTH) and Francesca Inaudi (AFTER MIDNIGHT). For lovers of Luchino Visconti's THE LEOPARD, this is a must-see! In Italian with English subtitles.

CORPO CELESTE
2011, Film Movement, 98 min, Italy, Dir: Alice Rohrwacher

In director Alice Rohrwacher's assured debut feature, 12-year-old Marta (Yile Vianello) has moved to her native Calabria, a heavily Christian, working-class province in the south of Italy, after having lived in Switzerland for ten years. Feeling like an alien in her new surroundings, Marta self-consciously bumbles her way through catechism classes, tries to make friends and grapples with the loathsome, lofty village priest Don Mario (GOMORRAH's Salvatore Cantalupo). Official selection of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. "Almost a street-level and youth-centered counterpart to vet helmer Nanni Moretti's Cannes competish title WE HAVE A POPE about a pontiff in crisis, Rohrwacher's pic offers a Dardennes-esque look at a working-class teen's growing pains in a backwater parish in southern Italy." –Variety. In Italian with English subtitles.
