Cine Italiano! - Cinema Italian Style in Hong Kong - 2019 – PAID EVENT




Hong Kong’s premier annual showcase of Italian cinema, Cine Italiano! - Cinema Italian Style in Hong Kong! is back for its eighth edition! Co-presented by Istituto Luce Cinecittà, the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, the Italian Cultural Institute in Hong Kong, the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong and in collaboration with PREMIERE ELEMENTS, this year’s festival will run from 12 to 22 September 2019 at PREMIERE ELEMENTS. Don’t miss award-winning films and restored classics from one of the world’s most vibrant film industries!

This year’s Cine Italiano! will open with coming-of-age crime drama Piranhas. The winner of Best Screenplay at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, the critically acclaimed film by director Claudio Giovannesi follows a group of 15-year-old boys as they navigate the dangerous world of crime in Naples, which based on the best-selling novel by the writer of Gomorrah. It’s a powerful crime drama about the loss of innocence and misguided ambitions.

Fans of classic films shouldn’t miss a special screening of The Seduction of Mimi. Directed by the great Lina Wertmüller (Swept Away), who will be receiving the Academy Honorary Award this year, the 1972 satire follows a hapless steelworker whose life is turned upside down by his connections to the Mafia, political parties and his lovers. The winner of Best Actor at the David di Donatello Awards, this Italian comedy classic has been restored for a new generation of film buffs.

This year’s lineup features a diverse selection of Italian films from vastly different genres. Magical Nights, the bittersweet comedy about the glories of Italian Cinema; The Champion, a compelling story about friendship set in the world of professional football; Romulus & Remus: The First King, depicting the epic yet brutal journey of two brothers in the founding of Rome; Capri-Revolution, the sensual and intellectual awakenings of artist-radicals in the early 20th century; magical realism is transformed into an enlightening comedy in Lucia’s Grace, and is matched with aching resonance in the grim tale of The Vice of Hope.

Cine Italiano! is part of Italia Mia Festival 2019.
