Cineforum Italiano: Scialla! (Take it Easy)

At Letelier Theater in Georgetown on June 3rd at 4:00pm Passatempo will be screening a delightful, award-winning comedy from Italy about an unlikely coexistence between a father and his newly-discovered teenage son.  It's an early Father's Day Celebration.

Bruno (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) has lost all zest for life - his career is flagging and his passion for teaching has become an apathetic routine with equally uninterested students, including 15-year-old Luca. One day Luca's mother reveals a secret that turns Bruno's life upside down: Luca is his son. Awkward.

This is classic comedy served up Italian style - warm and funny but never over-sentimental or patronizing. "Scialla" is Roman slang for "take it easy", and this film is pretty much just that. Not loud or vulgar but simple and amusing. Al dente!
