Wednesday 13th September 2017 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Vittorio De Sica, 1970, Italy, 95 mins.
With Dominique Sanda, Helmut Berger, Lino Capolicchio, Fabio Testi.

The beautiful young people whogather in the garden of the Finzi-Continis seem immune to the harsh realities of the world beyond its walls, where Mussolini and his Fascist government hold power. They play tennis, flirt and fall in love, their very existence in denial of the dark clouds gathering on the horizon. A hauntingly nostalgic picture of a lost age.
