Shadow of the Day
15th November 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm
Italy 2022, 128 mins, Italian (with English subtitles); Director Giuseppe Piccione, featuring Riccardo Scarmarcio, Benedetta Porcaroli
The film is set in 1938 Italy. Like the majority of his fellow Italians, decorated war veteran and restaurant manager Luciano is a staunch supporter of the country’s fascist regime. Shortly after the Italian racial laws are introduced, Anna, a young beautiful woman, turns up at the restaurant, desperately looking for work. When Anna’s closely kept secrets are finally revealed, Luciano, who has fallen in love with her, must reconsider his ideological beliefs and decide where his loyalties lie. This captivating melodrama perfectly captures the oppression and fear created by Mussolini’s brutal rule.
Film contains scenes of a sexual nature
