Cineforum – Divorzio all’italiana

The Cambridge University Italian Society is proud to invite you to our first Cinema Night of the year! Lighten up a gloomy and dark autumn evening with a classic Italian comedy: Divorce, Italian Style by Pietro Germi.

Ferdinando Cefalù (Marcello Mastroianni) would love to unload his demanding, sex-starved, monumentally unappealing wife, Rosalia (Daniela Rocca), but he can’t take the legal means open to his American counterparts. Ferdinando can, however, kill off his wife and receive a light sentence…provided he catches the lady committing adultery. The trick now is to make his plate-of-potatoes spouse attractive enough so that some other man will accommodate Ferdinando by cuckolding him.

There will be English subtitles.

Refreshments will be provided. The event will be free for members and £2 for non-members. It will be possible to buy a discounted life membership for £10 or an annual membership for £5.

Please make sure to arrive between 8.50pm and 9.10pm as the gates of the College will be closed after that. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

We hope to see many of you there!
