il divo Sunday the 9th at Cookie 7.30 pm
We will show a little of our Italian side this Sunday with antipasti, pasta red wine and a great film at Cookie.
With nick names like, the Hunch Back, Black Pope and Beelzebub, Giulio Andreotti, 7 times prime minister of post war Italy, is one of the most interesting personas of the Italian Republic. Even if you know nothing of Italian politics and recent history this is a very entertaining film which can be enjoyed on various levels. As always Sorrentino’s sound track is impeccable.
Italy is finding itself again as a film making country after many years of sentimental nostalgia, directors like Sorrentino are finally giving voice to contemporary society.
