I nostri ragazzi
Marco Poccioni, Marco Valsania e Rai Cinema presentano ; una produzione Rodeo Drive con Rai Cinema ; un film di Ivano De Matteo
"Two couples, in which the two men are brothers, meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the polite scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a child: the two teenagers are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love."--Cineuropa website.

Cologno Monzese (MI) : Medusa Film, [2010]
"Primary numbers can only be divided by one or by themselves. They are solitary numbers and are incomprehensible to others. Alice and Mattia are both "primary numbers", both persecuted by tragedies which have marked their childhoods: a skiing accident in the case of Alice, which has led to a defect in one leg; the loss of a twin sister in the case of Mattia. When as teenagers they meet in the school corridor, they recognise each other's pain. As they grow up their destinies interweave and they form a special bond, until Mattia, having graduated in Physics, decides to accept a job abroad. The two separate for many years and only a sequence of events will bring them back together, bringing back to the surface a number of emotions never confessed."--Http://

Soon after, without design, she falls in love with Pedro Abrunhosa, a poet and performance artist. He also loves her. She keeps her distance from him, confessing her love to a friend who is a nun and, later, to her husband. Hunger for her love and jealousy consume him; she attends him as he wastes away. With his death, she can marry and express her passion, but what she does and how she explains herself, particularly to her cloistered friend, is at the heart of the film."

Finding the mother lode : Italian immigrants in California
directed by Gianfranco Norelli ; produced by Suma Kurien and Gianfranco Norelli
[United States?] : Eurus Productions, Inc., ©2013
Italians first came to California in large numbers with the Gold Rush. While most found little gold, they did find a mother lode in farming, fishing, commerce and making wine. This program documents the experience of Italian immigrants in California, which was markedly different from that of their compatriots elsewhere in the United States. Through stories set in seven Italian communities throughout California, this film examines how economic and social mobility became possible for many Italians in the Golden State. It is also a look at how immigrant identity is maintained and transformed as immigrants become assimilated into mainstream America.

1921, The beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite Dumonts castle. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owners place. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune. In ways quite similar to the Castafiore, Marguerite has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husbands reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo, both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers. Loosely inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins.

土本典昭, 1928-2008, director of film
[Hamden, Conn.] : Zakka Films, [2011]
In 1964 (box incorrectly says 1963) Japan was in the midst of its long period of high economic growth and Tokyo was busy revamping its urban infrastructure. When most were celebrating the economic expansion, Noriaki Tsuchimoto focused his analytical gaze on the life of one taxi driver, Kikuo Kawasaki. What he saw were miserable and unhealthy labor conditions, a Tokyo littered with traffic jams and construction work, a city where traffic accidents were multiplying and pedestrians unsafe. Coupling the tense visuals with impressive music, Tsuchimoto likens this supposedly new Tokyo to a skeletal wreck.

When Sandra Elliot's husband disappears, she calls in Harper, private detective, to find him. Woefully explaining that her husband had been a nudist before they got married, perhaps he may have escaped to a Florida nudist camp. So with just a tip that Mr. Elliott can be identified by a tattoo on his arm, Harper and his lovely assistant Diana pose as brother and sister to search for the missing husband among the happy sun-worshippers.
