The latest Italian cinema arrives with old-fashioned glamour and grim new stories

This event has finished

This year’s Lavazza Italian Film Festival promises ‘passion’ and ‘sensuality’ so often it might be about to put a hand on your thigh. If old-school romance is what you’re after, though, The Great Beauty provides opening night grandeur with a tale of a jaded journalist rediscovering hope. There’s also I Travel Alone, where a hotel critic suspects there’s maybe more to life than five-star luxury.

But there are darker connections made here, too. There’s the relationship between a mafia assassin and a blind witness in Cannes favourite Salvo; between a 17-year-old and the 15-year-old girl he’s forced to ‘babysit’ by a crime boss in The Interval; and between an angel of mercy and the terminally ill patients she helps to die with dignity in Honey.

Venues in Melbourne will be Palace Cinema Como, Kino Cinemas, Palace Westgarth, Palace Balwyn and Palace Brighton Bay.
