Passare I Popcorn
Contemporary Italian film gets its daywell, evening actuallyin another screening from the excellent Cinema Italiano series, part of the ongoing international cinema mini-festival at Bowers Museum. On these special nights, the museum becomes a cozy, old-fashioned art/film house with reception before and discussion after. This week focuses on Le Chiavi de Casa (The Keys to the House) from esteemed director Gianni Open Doors Amelio. A big winner at the Venice Film Festival and co-starring molto bella Charlotte Rampling (reason enough to see it), this adaptation of a novel about a widowed father who reunites with his disabled son is a movie youd probably never see otherwise, or at least not with a roomful of appreciative cinephiles.
