Bella addormentata

115 mins

in Italian with EN subs

ITA/FRA | 2012 | dir. Marco Bellocchio, with Toni Servillo, Isabelle Huppert, Alba Rohrwacher

This ultra-contemporary examination of modern Italy weaves together four separate stories, linked by the theme of euthanasia and based on a highly controversial real-life court case. With a brilliant cast, thoughtfully performing rounded characters and a carefully balanced understated script, shot through with flashes of sly wit, this is one of the most outstanding films from Bellocchio.

The screening on Fri 22 June will be followed by a Q&A with director Marco Bellocchio
