The London Italian Language Meetup Group Message Board › Habemus Papam (italian film with english subtitles) on Thursday 28th
Dear members of the italian meetup
I'm sure that all of you know already about the historical event taking place this week in Rome: the present Pope steps down from his office. This is an extremely rare event, as it has not happened for many centuries!
When the news started to spread, many Italian journalists immediately noticed this interesting coincidence: Nanni Moretti, a very well known italian director, recently wrote and directed a movie about a Pope who is not able to cope with the responsibility of his new office.
So we're meeting on thursday 28th at Bar Italia Uno (91 Charlotte Street, W1T 4PX) to watch "HABEMUS PAPAM" in Italian with English subtitles.
A comment I've found on-line:
"This is a movie about an elderly man who has been chosen to be the next Pope. But, beware: the operative word in the previous sentence is "man", not "Pope", because the story is not about the challenges of being (or becoming) Pope: the story is about the struggles of being human. That's the reason why each and every one of us should be able to easily follow and enjoy this funny, educated movie"
As always the owner of the bar, Mr.Felice, will kindly ask us to spend a fixed £6 on food + drink or £5 for 2 drinks. (only cash accepted - drinks are non alcoholic).
We'll meet in the bar from 7PM. After the movie we'll move to a pub nearby for socializing and discussing about this and the next movies!
Looking forward to see many of you on Thursday.
