This event is part of a series of Zoom meetings that IIS offers to discuss the contents of older and new movies from Italian filmography. It is also an opportunity to spend time together with other students and have a conversation in Italian with, perhaps, a glass of wine in hand.
Because a movie is like a good wine: with each new meeting it has a different flavor, it shows details that we had not noticed before, and it changes with the passing of the years and the experiences we have had.
Participation level Advanced
On Friday, June 2nd from 6 pm to 7 pm, via Zoom we will talk about:
Il Vedovo-The Widower (1959)
Director: Dino Risi
Stars: Alberto Sordi, Franca Valeri
Synopsis: Alberto Nardi is a Roman businessman who fancies himself a man of great capabilities, but whose factory is perennially on the brink of a catastrophe. He is married to a rich and successful businesswoman from Milan, Elvira, who has a no-nonsense attitude and barely tolerates the attempts of her husband to keep his factory afloat with her money.
