THE LIFE AHEAD
LA VITA DAVANTI A SÉ
2020, Netflix, 94 min, Italy, Dir: Edoardo Ponti

A Holocaust survivor running a daycare business forms an unlikely friendship with a bitter street kid when she takes him in after he robs her. Starring Sophia Loren, Ibrahima Gueye and Renato Carpentieri. In Italian, Spanish, Hebrew and Romanian with English subtitles.


CARO DIARIO
DEAR DIARY
1993, Film Movement, 100 min, Italy/France, Dir: Nanni Moretti

Nanni Moretti recounts three entries from his “diary” in this hilarious and intimate self-reflective comedy, which follows the filmmaker’s musings on cinema atop a Vespa, a trip to the Aeolian Islands to work on his new screenplay, and his search for health and wellness after breaking out in a nagging skin rash. Winner of Best Director at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. “With a seductive rhythm, the film alternates between wry encounters and lovely restful interludes, the latter presented so soothingly that they create a contemplative mood. Beautiful Italian scenery is also among this film's many pleasures.” - Janet Maslin, The New York Times


ORDINARY HAPPINESS
MOMENTI DI TRASCURABILE FELICITÀ
2019, Rai Com, 93 min, Italy, Dir: Daniele Luchetti

In this touching comedy, husband and father Paolo is busy with his morning routine when unthinkable tragedy strikes at a traffic light. Waking up in what appears to be a post office, Paolo realizes that he has died and now awaits his eternal fate in the afterlife. A clerical error, however, affords him 93 minutes back on Earth. How will he spend it? Starring Pif, Thony, and Renato Carpentieri.
