The 13th edition of Italian Film Festival UK is ‘una cosa bella’. In fact it is more beautiful than it has been for quite a while. Italy shifted from being a byword for

great cinema some decades ago, but judging by this collection its star may be on the rise again. Not only are there great new films from the most promising and gifted local filmmakers, Nanni Moretti (The Caiman), Roberto Faenza (The Days of Abandonment), Cristina Comencin (Don’t Tell), Paolo Sorrentino (The Family Friend, pictured) and Ferzan Oztepek (Sacred Heart) but there are also screenings of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, Rossellini’s Journey to Italy and a rare chance to see Isabella Rossellini’s 16-minute tribute to her father, My Dad is 100 Years Old. Ciao! Visit for more information.
