Italian Film Festival Monthly Screening at the Tower Theatre

March 22, 2013, 6:30 p.m.

Cinema Italy presents the film Notte Prima Degli Esami (Night Before the Exams), an Italian comedy directed by Fausto Brizzi, starring Cristina Capotondi and Giorgio Faletti.

Italian writer-cum-director Fausto Brizzi’s nostalgic teen comedy Notte Prima Degli Esami unfolds in Italy in the mid-1980s. High school student Luca brazenly insults his literature professor but fails to anticipate the teacher’s participation in his oral exams. He thus makes a concerted effort to win the prof over, while pining for the class sex kitten whom he soon realizes, is the offended professor’s daughter!

Luca will try everything to win back Professor Martinelli’s admiration and the two of them begin meeting after school under the excuse that he needs revising for the exams. They eventually start to meet because they have become…well almost… friends.  The filmmakers sprinkle the soundtrack with ’80s europop hits by such groups as Duran Duran and Queen, and fill the frame with a myriad of references to the era.
