Date:

05/12/2015


Screening of

Marcello Mastroianni, Giulietta Masina, Franco Fabrizi

in Italian with English subtitles

Imitators of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Pippo and Amelia achieved a fair amount of success at their music-hall act. Life then led them down different paths. Forty years later, they are reunited. She, a new widow, and he takes it one day at a time. They meet on the occasion of a television variety show thathosts glories of the past.  Confused in a show-biz world they don’t recognize, their former tenderness is reborn, so much so that Fred proposes to his Ginger, if very late, a romantic love escape. But nothing becomes of it: the show must go on and melancholy has the upperhand. This event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served. Click here to RSVP
