Meetup Description: This is a meetup event we will do with the Independent Movie Goers group. They invited us to join them and I have pasted their info about the event below...spero di vedevi!
Many of you don't know this, but Cleveland has a small Italian film festival. The movies are all showing at Case and they are free to the public. It runs from April 14-23. Check out their website to see all the films. http://www.italianfil..
We are inviting our friends of the Italian Language MeetUp group to obtain their perspective. http://italian.meetup..
5:30 EATS: As part of the movie festival, where else to eat but Little Italy. There is a free parking lot just east of the railroad bridge on the north side of Mayfield. Anthony's is at 12018 Mayfield Road (north side). If it isn't snowing, it is about a 10 minute walk to the theater.
** Please let us know your dinner plans on your RSVP so that we can either save you a seat at the "Movie Group" table or plan to meet you at the movie. Cash is highly recommended. **
If you don't see us when you walk in, ask to be seated with the Movie Group.

DISCUSSION: We can return to Little Italy for some wine or cappuccino.
DESCRIPTION: Hassan, a young Tunisian mechanic, well respected for his hard work, lives a tranquil life in a small town in Northeastern Italy. Mara is a young schoolteacher, brought there by a temporary teaching job while waiting to leave for Brazil on a cooperative project. Eighteen-year-old Giovanni, an aspiring journalist, spends much time fixing an old motorbike in Hassan's shop; and he is something more than a witness to the love story between Hassan and Mara--a story that begins in an atmosphere of unrest. The destinies of these three people intertwine in the Po River delta country.
REVIEW: "The thinly veiled mistrust at the heart of every town lies deep within Carlo Mazzacurati's "The Right Distance," a handsome, charismatically performed mood piece that gets close to serious topics, but just misses properly embracing them." http://www.variety.com
