Baron Ferdinando Cefalù (the great Marcello Mastroianni) longs to marry his nubile young cousin Angela (Stefania Sandrelli), but one obstacle stands in his way: his fatuous and fawning wife, Rosalia (Daniela Rocca). His solution? Since divorce is illegal, he hatches a plan to lure his spouse into the arms of another and then murder her in a justifiable effort to save his honor. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Pietro Germi’s Divorce Italian Style is a hilarious and cutting satire of Catholic hypocrisy Sicilian male-chauvinist culture. We’re excited to screen this 60s comedy classic on 35mm.
Director Pietro Germi | 1961 | In Italian with English subtitles | 104 minutes | NR | 35mm
