MARIO MONICELLI: Tribute to the Maestro Of Commedia All'italiana

Film Forum
209 West Houston Street
10014 New York, NY
United States

Film Forum has an upcoming series they are hosting featuring films from the infamous Italian filmmaker Mario Monicelli. Commedia all'italiana dominated an era of hilarious, farcical comedy, "Italian Style," but with a biting edge and sense of melancholia. Working with the greatest stars of his day, including Totó, Gassman, Sordi, Loren, Mastroianni, and Magnani, perhaps the genre's supreme auteur was Mario Monicelli (1915-2010).
