BREAD, LOVE AND DREAMS
Sunday, October 4
Pane, amore e fantasia (1953, Luigi Comencini) In the mountains, the new Marshal of Carabinieri De Sica — who’s looking to end bachelorhood but has to keep that dignity — has an eye for supposedly-easy but actually feisty village girl Gina Lollobrigida (her favorite role); but she secretly yearns for his shy deputy. Well, what about midwife Marisa Merlini — but does she have a secret? First film of “pink/rosy neorealism.” Oscar-nominated for Best Story and a U.S. art house smash. Approx. 93 min. 35mm.
