Three movies for the addicts of cinematography. The cineclube presents three movies in April themed around Italy, one of them an absolute classic. This month all movies are screened in the library and the entry is free.
This classic by Frederico Fellini tells the story of the innocent and captivating Gelsomina and the violent Zampanò. This Oscar winning movie reflects on the duality of tenderness and brute force. The movie is in Italian with Portuguese subtitles.
The violent and passive duality of human nature is addressed by Matteo Garrone in Dogman. On the outskirts of Rome lives Marcello, a humble man who works in a beauty salon for dogs. Sick of being humiliated by the former boxer Simone, Marcello takes unexpected and fierce revenge. The film was highly acclaimed by critics, winning two awards at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. The movie is in Italian with Portuguese subtitles.
