"Io e Te" di Bernardo Bertolucci

  • May 5, 2013 · 3:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Too complicated to pre-order pizza before dinner with everyone's different schedules...so we'll meet upstairs at bar after film and if you want to come to Pizza Inferno at 7pm, we'll order food on the way over.

After nine years, Bertolucci has finally returned with a new film in Italian to be featured in this year's San Francisco International Film Festival. Tickets will be available online for purchase for non-SFFS members beginning April 5 at:

*Dinner/Drinks nearby following the film - location to be decided by the group (probably Pizza Inferno nearby on Fillmore). Let's meet at the Balcony Bar after the film inside Kabuki (on the 3rd floor at the top of the escalator) to gather and decide where to go after...

Film Description:

Returning to the hermetic environments that made his prior two films The Dreamers (2003) and Besieged (1998) so memorable, his latest is a brother-and-sister tale that takes place predominantly in a basement storage area. Fourteen-year-old Lorenzo is a deeply antisocial boy whose mother sends him to therapy. When he pretends enthusiasm for an upcoming school ski trip, his mom gives him spending money and he goes out shopping for supplies. Rather than sundries for the slopes, however, Lorenzo stocks up on junk food, looking forward to a week alone in the basement of the building where he lives. His “staycation” dream is foiled, though, when his turbulent half-sister Olivia shows up seeking a place to kick her heroin habit. Fantasies of being “home alone” with his glamorous, semi-famous sibling quickly curdle as Lorenzo must contend with secrets from her past. As the two attempt to come to terms with their fractured family upbringing, they try find a way out of their respectively maladjusted lives. If the Berlusconi era is partly to blame, Bertolucci keeps that on a purely suggestive level, though he’s stated in an interview that the former prime minister “anaesthetized the brains of young people.” Based on a novel of the same title by Italian author Niccolò Ammaniti and featuring vivid production design revealing the cast-off belongings of the building’s various residents past and present, a great soundtrack (David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” plays an important role) and graceful performances by newcomers Jacopo Olmo Antinori and Tea Falco, Me and You details the turbulence of youth with all the expertise we have come to expect from this master filmmaker.

    I would like to meet with Christine who lives in the hills of Berkeley, near where I am located. I just moved here and I am thinking of creating an Italian conversation group in this area, not far from my house, possibly up in the Kensington area.

    Ciao Kelly, ho anche apprezzato il film molto. E 'stato intenso nella storia, e le riprese, regia, era insolito, bella in un modo che ha aiutato il dialogo. Anche mia madre ha portato via mio padre, e per questo uno di linea, ho potuto assolutamente riferirsi a quella donna e il suo giovane miseria adulto. Ho girato il mio sub conscio disagio in acquisire una conoscenza della cultura di mio padre, che ha iniziato due anni fa a imparare il suo linguaggio.

    Hi All. My husband and I are also in the Italian Film Lovers Meetup. He doesn't speak Italian and I haven't spoken Italian for a long time, I'm very rusty. We'd be interested in grabbing a bite and discussing the film. How much of a bummer is it to have an Anglophone tag along? Looking forward to the film (got our tickets early).

      I am with you two!!

    I purchased my ticket online May 2. available at will call! I look forward to seeing the film, and meeting at the Kabuki Balcony Bar 3rd floor after the film. If I can still join you afterwards, I think I would be able to stay for a short time. I have to get back to my client in the East Bay. My pizza should be like Kristi's, wine and salad, or pizza veggi semza fromaggio!

    I have my ticket and am so looking forward to (trying my very best in Italian) talking about the film after with you all at Pizza Inferno. (I am not "allowed" to eat pizza right now but would surely order wine and salad if they have it on the menu!) :)
