October 10 starts the beginning of the 49th edition of the Chicago International Film Festival and we're excited to see that a number of Italian films are scheduled to be shown. This year, in fact, the festival will be celebrating Italian cinema with the retrospective Comedy, Italian Style, showing some of the most beloved Italian comedies of the past few decades.
Some of the films that we're most excited about are Divorce, Italian Style, the 1961 satire of Sicilian male-chauvinist culture, and Amarcord, Fellini's dreamlike capolavoro that pays tribute to small-town Italian life.
Check out the full list of films and showtimes here.
