Female workers at a textile factory in Prato lock themselves inside the factory when they learn that twenty of them are about to be fired. Stubbornly united even though their families are waiting for them, and despite their fears and weariness, the workers become the symbol of class struggle. A film of the “purest” neorealism, shot by Pontecorvo with Montaldo as an assistant and Solinas as screenwriter, an episode of the international project about women, La Rosa dei Venti.

At death’s doorstep, Giuseppe Verdi remembers his past: from his debut at the Scala with Oberto, conte di S. Bonifacio to the loss of his son and his wife, from his triumph with Nabucco to his tormented love story with the soprano Giuseppina Strepponi, which was first opposed and then finally accepted by the composer’s father-in-law. A biopic that veers toward melodrama, starring Pierre Cressoy, Gaby André and Anna Maria Ferrero, and with cameo appearances by Mario Del Monaco and Tito Gobbi.

I PARENTI TUTTI

by Fabio Garriba

Italy

Section:

  • 34° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE/FESTA VINTAGE

Three stories of young people who react to their dysfunctional families with extreme and paradoxical gestures. The film by the twins Fabio and Mario Garriba – discreet yet decisive presences in Italian cinema of the 1970s – is a bridge between Bellocchio and Moretti, combining anarchy and a paean to childhood. As actors and assistant directors, they were trained on the sets of Fellini, Monicelli, Moretti, Ferreri, Pasolini and Bellocchio. Fabio Garriba was also a poet.

INTOLERANCE

(INTOLERANCE)

by D.W. Griffith
1916

USA

Section:

  • 34° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE/FESTA VINTAGE

Four stories of intolerance and oppression, from the fall of Babylonia to present times, from the Gospel to the massacre of the Huguenots. Colossal and lavish, it was Griffith’s grand fiasco, and only later was it greatly reconsidered: during the 1960s, Pauline Kael called it “one of the two or three most influential films ever made,” and still today, on its centenary, its narration and visuals are dazzling. In 35mm, restored by the MoMA.

A ship transporting inmates to the prisons of South America is also carrying Consuelo, whose family has forced her to accuse herself of infanticide in order to save her wicked cousin, Isabella. Faced with yet more abuse inflicted on the girl and on the lawyer Da Silva, who snuck onboard to save her, the inmates organize an uprising. Matarazzo is flamboyant, over-the-top and champing at the bit, wild and baroque; it’s pure enjoyment.

  • FESTA MOBILE/FESTA VINTAGE

Java, 1942: in a Japanese concentration camp, the tension between the commander (Sakamoto Ryuichi) and an imprisoned English officer (David Bowie) erupts in amour fou. The famous cult movie by Oshima, a war movie which is also a heartbreaking melodrama about the futility of all conflict. A sort of Bridge Over the River Kwai, dipped into post-modern confusion over identity. Starring, among others, Tom Conti and Takeshi Kitano. The kiss between the two protagonists and the soundtrack by Sakamoto are unforgettable.
