Cineforum Italiano: Questione di cuore (A Matter of Heart)

The lastest film directed by Francesca Archibugi, "Una questione di cuore", is an insightful and sensitive exploration of the complex dynamics of the modern family. The film offers comic cameo appearances by some of the most well-known names in the Italian film industry.

In Italian with English subtitles

Director: Francesca Archibugi
Year: 2009
Length: 102 minutes
Genre: Drammatic Comedy

Actors: Kim Rossi Stuart, Antonio Albanese, Michaela Ramazzoto, Francesca Inaudi, Chiara Noschese

It was unlikely that Angelo and Alberto’s paths would ever cross. Angelo (Kim Rossi Stuart), a solid family man, is married with two kids and a third on the way. A thoughtful and generous man, he runs his own garage that provides a good life for his family. A very different personality, Alberto (Antonio Albanese) is a successful writer, but a loner; loudmouthed, clumsy and a little bit crazy.

They meet in the emergency room, befriending each other on the night as Angelo says, “their engines seized” – each suffering a heart attack. The heart attack makes Angelo rightly fear for his family’s future, while Alberto cannot commit to the woman he loves and suffers from writer’s block. But when Angelo and Alberto are together, they feel better and stronger.

The film will be screened one time only on Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 4:00 PM at Letelier Theater in Georgetown. The event is organized by The Washington, DC Italian Language Meetup Group. Tickets are available to group members for $8.00 or general admission is $10.00 at the door.

Here's a trailer for the film in Italian with no subtitles:
