Edoardo Falcone | 2015 | 87 min - with English subtitles

Tommaso (Marco Giannini), an estimated heart surgeon, is married to Carla (Laura Morante), with whom he has two daughters: Bianca (Ilaria Spada), a listless and uninterested young woman, and Andrea (Enrico Oetiker), a brilliant young man enrolled in medicine. One day, Andrea surprises his entire family by revealing his new decision to become a priest to follow the example of Don Pietro (Alessandro Gassman), an atypical priest. According to Tommaso, a confirmed atheist, Andrea’s decision needs to be reverted as soon as possible and he won’t hesitate to start a real fight in order to make that change happen.

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 and the International House of Philadelphia, present the 2015 edition of NEW ITALIAN CINEMA. The festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema Studies) and aims at promoting Italian Cinema abroad with very recent released feature films.
