A FLAT FOR THREE
POSTI IN PIEDI IN PARADISO
2012, 119 min, Italy, Dir: Carlo Verdone

Carlo Verdone's sharp, merciless comedy centers on divorced buddies Ulisse, Fulvio and Domenico (Carlo Verdone, Pierfrancesco Favino and Marco Giallini) who make the dubious decision to move in together to help their financial woes. But sharing a tiny apartment in Rome proves ridiculously problematic as their personalities clash, and ex-wives, young and grown-up children and frisky new sex partners drop in and out at the most inconvenient times. For his supporting turn, Favino won the Special Jury Award at the 2012 Golden Globes Italy, and the film was awarded Best Comedy by the Italian film critics union (S.N.G.C.I.). In Italian with English subtitles.


THE FIRST ON THE LIST
I PRIMI DELLA LISTA
2012, Intramovies, 85 min, Italy, Dir: Roan Johnson

Set in political turmoil-roiled 1970s Italy, leftist students Renzo (Francesco Turbanti), Fabio (Paolo Cioni) and Pino (Claudio Santamaria) convince themselves that a terrorist attack is near and preemptively flee across the Austrian border, a bumbling move that lands them in jail. Roan Johnson's paranoid comedy perfectly captures the heightened tension of the times, while deftly combining a light, even delightful tone of young, hilariously misguided idealism. For his winning lead performance, Turbanti received a L.A.R.A. Award Special Mention at the 2011 Rome Film Festival. In Italian with English subtitles.
