St Ali Italian film festival 2023

St Ali Italian film festival 2023

The St Ali Italian film festival 2023 starts on September 20 to mid October in Australia and there is a fantastic line-up of movies to appeal to everyone's tastes, whether you love drama, comedies, documentaries and more.

The films are presented by Palace cinemas and talented Italian-Australian food writer, TV producer and host Silvia Colloca is the 2023 Festival Ambassador.
Opening the festival is the exciting drama, The Last Night of Amore (L'ultima notte di Amore) led by Italian superstar Pierfrancesco Favino.

Set in Milan, the thriller follows a police lieutenant (played by Favino) who is drawn into a web of crime and corruption on the eve of his retirement and the film was a major Italian box office hit.

The festival presentation of Caravaggio's shadow (L'ombra di Caravaggio), is an eagerly anticipated historical drama from writer/director Michele Placido, starring Riccardo Scamarcio and Isabelle Huppert.

It explores the struggles of the notorious and brilliant Renaissance painter as he is investigated by the Vatican.
Other exciting highlights include A Brighter Tomorrow (Il sol dell'avvenire), the latest offering from the legendary Nanni Moretti. The film is a meta-comedy in which a movie director struggles with his family, art and culture.
Documentaries like The Genius of Gianni Versace and the Magic are also on my must-watch list.
