THE WOMAN OF MY LIFE
LA DONNA DELLA MIA VITA
2010, 96 min, Italy, UK, Dir: Luca Lucini

In Luca Lucini's dynamic romantic comedy, Leonardo (Luca Argentero) and Giorgio (Alessandro Gassman) are brothers with completely opposite personalities - Leonardo is sensitive and trustworthy, while Giorgio is an outlandish, incorrigible playboy. When Leonardo enters into a serious relationship with Sara (Valentina Lodovini), a woman with whom Giorgio previously had a tumultuous affair, a delightfully chaotic love triangle is formed, with feelings and behaviors coming to the surface that no one could have anticipated. In Italian with English subtitles.

PIRANHA (1978)
1978, New World Pictures, 94 min, USA, Dir: Joe Dante

Screenwriter John Sayles cleverly riffs on JAWS in this early directorial effort from Joe Dante, in which a school of deadly mutant piranha heads for a sleepy summer community. Combining crisp action with razor-sharp satire, this fast, funny and scary creature feature is one of the best films to come out of producer Roger Corman's New World Pictures in the 1970s.
