Take a winter vacation with directors Bertolucci, Rossellini, Monicelli and the Tavianni Brothers, and actors Anna Magnani, Giulietta Masina and Dominique Sanda. On a night when wishes come true, a Tuscan village resists the Nazis; a woman (Ingrid Bergman) embraces the life force of Italy; a country girl (Stefania Sandrelli) yearns to be a star in Rome; a man (Marcello Mastroianni) enters a world dominated by women. Films in Italian with English subtitles. Once again, we team with Festa Italiana to celebrate classic Italian cinema.
In the prewar 1930s, a man (Jean-Louis Trintignant) represses his youthful sexual trauma by obsessively seeking conformity, thus endangering everyone he cares about. Ravishing cinematography by world-master Vittorio Storaro. Digital restoration, 115 min.
