A young Sicilian boy who loses his father to war strikes up a friendship with an aging projectionist; eventually, the boy takes over his mentor's job and becomes a filmmaker himself - but he loses the love of his life along the way. A gloriously romantic and unabashedly sentimental love letter to the romance of the movies. With Philippe Noiret, Jacques Perrin. In Italian with English subtitles.
Director Woody Allen stars as neurotic comedian Alvy Singer in this Oscar-winning comedy classic, in which he leads the viewer through the ups and downs of his relationship with Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) to explore what led to its demise. Bursting with comic bravura and insights into love among the neurotics, ANNIE HALL deservedly walked off with the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actress (Diane Keaton), Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (Allen and Marshall Brickman), plus a nomination for Best Actor (Woody Allen). With Tony Roberts, Paul Simon, Shelley Duvall and Carol Kane.

“Bring me the big knife!” This wonderfully lunatic comic gem from screenwriter John Patrick Shanley stars Cher as Loretta Castorini, a sexy, smart-mouthed widow who’s resigned herself to an upcoming marriage to terminally indecisive Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello) - until Johnny’s wildly passionate, one-handed brother Ronny (Nicolas Cage) professes his undying love for her. Academy Award winner for Best Actress (Cher), Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis) and Screenplay (Shanley).
