    As I previously wrote, Tormenti was wonderfully, ingeniously and delightfully orchestrated, with important philosophical and political overtones. Mena and I enoyed it immensely. My questions is: L'industriale begins at 7, probably won't conclude until 9, and you are planning dinner AFTERWARDS, which means about 9:30 or 10? Why not dinner BEFORE? And, for those of us who do not live in the immediate neighborhood: where is The Porch located, and what is their menu? Thanks for enlightenment. Dom Potts

      Dear Dominic all options are open. There are people who because of work schedule usually aren't able to have dinner before the movie (if it has been on a saturday, it would have been easier on everyone) but I also have a feeling that there might be snacks after the movie provided at site. If that is the case, we can all mingle there for a while. Otherwise, the ones that are able to go and eat afterwards, the Porch is right across to the Fine Arts building in the Schenley Plaza. You can't miss it...Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Il quarantenne Nicola è proprietario di una fabbrica sull’orlo del fallimento, nella Torino immersa nella grande crisi economica che soffoca tutto il paese. Ma è orgoglioso, tenace. Ha deciso di risolvere i suoi problemi senza farsi scrupoli. Laura, sua moglie, è sempre più lontana, ma Nicola non fa nulla per colmare la distanza che ormai li separa. Assediato dagli operai che lo pressano per conoscere il loro destino, Nicola avverte che qualcosa sta turbando l’unica certezza che gli è rimasta: il matrimonio. Ma invece di aprirsi con Laura comincia a sospettare di lei e a seguirla di nascosto. Tutto precipita. Nicola annaspa e tira fuori il peggio di sé. Poi tutto sembra tornare a posto: l’azienda, il matrimonio, il successo sociale. Ma l'uomo ha più di un segreto da nascondere e il ritratto sociale assume sfumature dostoevskijane.
