dir. Paolo Genovese, 2014, DCP, 120 min., in Italian w/English subtitles - Presented by Andrea Gazzoni

Francesco Taramelli (Marco Giallini) is a psychologist coping with three hopeless cases: a bookseller who falls in love with a thief, a lesbian who decides to become straight, and an eighteen-year-old girl who loses her mind for a fifty-year-old man. But the real basket case turns out to be the poor analyst, considering that all three patients are his three beloved daughters.


This free admission film festival is made possible thanks to the support of:

The Cinema Studies Program and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Philadelphia, N.I.C.E. New Italian Cinema Events, and International House Philadelphia present the 2013 edition of New Authors of Italian Cinema.

This four-day festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema Studies) and aims at promoting new Italian Cinema abroad. Recently released feature films directed in the past two years by Italy’s most promising filmmakers will be presented and discussed by our Penn’s Italian Ph.D. students. The final remarks will be addressed by Stefania Benini, Professor of Italian Cinema at the University of Pennsylvania.
