Cine Club at Collina Italiana invites you to the screening of "Benvenuti al Nord" by Luca Miniero. $25 per person, panel discussion with our movie specialist Riccardo Costa will follow after the screening. Space is limited. Please email us at [masked] for further information
Plot: Last year we screened the Italian box office hit, Benvenuti al sud (Welcome to the South) and now we'll see the sequel Benvenuti al nord (Welcome to the North) . The film has the same hilarious cast of characters but this time the adventure moves to Milan. It's another opportunity to explore the North-South rivalry which is still very much alive in Italy.
You may recall that in Benvenuti al sud, Alberto is the manager of a Post Office in a small town in northern Italy who will do anything to get a transfer to Milan - even going so far as to pretend he is disabled to get higher up on the transfer list. But this trick doesn't work and as a "punishment" he is transferred to a small town in the southern Campania region, which, for a person from the north, is a real nightmare. Full of prejudice, Alberto leaves to brave what he considers the land of camorra, full of lazy southerners. But, to his surprise, Alberto will instead find a fascinating place, with friendly colleagues, very hospitable people and a new best friend, the postman Mattia, who he will help to win the heart of the beautiful Maria.
