IL LEONE & LA RIFFA
Thursday, October 1
Il Leone, De Sica’s episode from Le Coppie (1970): Time to make a tightly-timed post-tryst getaway for wary adulterers Alberto Sordi and Monica Vitti — but what’s that lion doing blocking their way? La Riffa, De Sica’s episode from Boccaccio ’70 (1962): Got to keep her sister’s travelling shooting gallery going, so an extravoluptuous Sophia Loren (in a very fitted red dress) puts herself up as the prize in the big raffle — who will win? And then what? Approx. 72 min. Both 35mm.
