Accattone is an unsuccessful and self-destructive pimp living in the slums of Rome.

No Image for ALLEGRO NON TROPPO
CertificationPG Our Rating
Superb parody of Fantasia, with five separate and beautifully animated sequences, set to some very famous pieces of music. Wittily done with the interludes being a surreal mix of conductor, orchestra and animator (played by Maurizio Nichetti of 'Volere Volare' fame). Funny and entertaining. find out more...

AMARCORD (1973)
Certification15 Our Rating
Amarcord was conceived as a tribute to Fellini's childhood upbringing in the Italian resort town of Rimini. He captures a year in the life of a provincial seaside town in the 1930s through a series of nostalgic vignettes which reflect the bizarre mixture of characters and events that the town attracts: loopy teachers, strange foreigners, curvaceous women, a skinny nymphomaniac, a crazed solitary motorcyclist, hilarious family rows, a wedding and a funeral. Veering from delicate and painful emoti find out more...

APRILE (1998)

Nanni Moretti, the director of "Dear Diary", sticks with his favoured format of part fact, part fiction in this riotous comedy documentary. Torn between making a film about the imminent birth of his first child, or the state of Italian politics, or a Trotskyist pastry chef, Moretti extravagantly decides to combine all three! And why not? find out more...

BAARIA (2009)
Certification15 Our Rating
Giuseppe Tornatore directed this grand-scale portrait of life and love over several decades in the small town in Sicily where he was born. We see a number of important historical events through the eyes of young Peppino, watching the fortunes of his town and his family rise and fall. While open to accusations of nostalgia, superficiality and indulgence the film is something of a feast for the senses.
A rambunctious family saga the kind they don't, and probably shouldn't, make any more. find out more...
No Image for BEFORE THE REVOLUTION

An early Bertolucci piece which relates the inner turmoil of a young middle-class man who is torn between Marxism and the comforts of his background. Full of poetic setpieces and indicative of the director's later style. Also an aid to an understanding of the 60s. find out more...

Perhaps the most influential period in cinema history was the Italian neo-realism period of the late 40s and director Vittorio De Sica was one of the prime reasons for this important period of film-making. "The Bicycle Thieves" is a film about a poor man whose only means for a job is his bicycle, which gets stolen. The film follows him and his young boy throughout war-ravaged Rome in search of the stolen bike. The trip involves some of the most brilliant vignettes in film history; the church, th find out more...

Marguerite is a beautiful and wealthy young socialite trapped in a life of decadent despair, unable to find a way of escape she stumbles from one drug induced sexual encounter to the next culminating in a stylishly dated but extravagant S&M party. Camille is a hefty dose of art house porn, deeply fashion conscious, emotionally existential and vacuous, it is suitably reflective of its time.
