dir. Rolando Ravello, 2014, Blu-Ray, 91 min., in Italian w/English subtitles - Presented by Nicolò Moscatelli

A romantic comedy that begins with a meeting between Robert, author of surreal and unfortunate black fables, and Bea, elementary teacher, elegant and seemingly distracted, at the door of the therapist who is treating them both. Roberto is a kleptomaniac, Bea instead suffers from a serious form of narcolepsy and sudden, and unpredictable, amnesia. Begins immediately courtship tenacious and funny, which will eventually make her fall in love. Between petty theft and fainting, escapes and chases, their love story will offer perhaps a chance to heal. Presented out of competition at the 2013 Rome International Festival and at the Moscow Film Festival, the film won the Nastro d'Argento for the Best Production.


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.
