Film: Italian for Beginners
Contemporary Danish Film Series
Join us for a delightful movie that Roger Ebert calls “a charming Danish comedy.”
Three men and three women take an Italian class as a way to escape their loneliness and spice up their lives. Along the way they connect with each other and go on a journey that changes everything they know about love.
Using handheld cameras and natural lighting, this romantic comedy was shot in accordance with the principles of Dogme 95, a contemporary film movement emphasizing reality in filmmaking. Italian for Beginners was the first movie by a female director to follow such strict guidelines and principles.
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Lone Sherfig (2000, 112 min.). Screening notes will be provided. In Danish with English subtitles. This film is rated R.
