Jealousy, Italian Style

Ettore Scola | Italy | | Unclassified (15+)
Film

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

In one of her greatest comedic performances, Monica Vitti is Adelaide, a florist in a less-than-picturesque Rome enmeshed in a turbulent, farcical relationship with both Marcello Mastroianni’s adulterous communist bricklayer (a Cannes Best Actor-winning turn) and Giancarlo Giannini’s woebegone young pizzaiolo (hence the film’s international title, The Pizza Triangle). Co-writer and director Scola here infuses the commedia all’italiana with bitter irony and fourth wall-breaking formal sophistication; the cinematography is by the great Carlo Di Palma.

About the program

Monica Vitti is one of the most iconic performers of European modernist cinema. She is best known for her extraordinary four-film collaboration with lover Michelangelo Antonioni in the early 1960s. The cultural and artistic impact of these four films – which launched her career – has, in the international realm at least, tended to obscure her much longer reign as an almost-unrivalled star of Italian comedy.
