ITALIAN MOVIE NIGHT


Plot
: Famed director Guido Anselmi is working on his latest movie - part science fiction, part commentary on Catholicism, but most importantly primarily autobiography. Despite Anselmi declaring that this movie should be an easy one to make, he is having problems with his artistic vision, specifically as he does not want to tell a lie on screen. From the stress, he has checked himself into a spa to help him with many of his problems, both professional and personal. As he works through these problems, he reminisces about his childhood and fantasizes about how he either sees things playing out or how he hopes they will play out. Surrounding him at the spa and/or on set are many of the real-life people who will be portrayed on screen including: his wife Luisa who he loves but who he does not fully understand especially as it relates to their marriage; his mistress Carla, the antithesis of Luisa; and an actress named Claudia who he sees as providing his ultimate salvation.

Trama: il famoso regista Guido Anselmi sta lavorando al suo ultimo film - in parte fantascienza, in parte commentario sul cattolicesimo, ma soprattutto un’autobiografia. Nonostante Anselmi dichiari che questo film dovrebbe essere facile da realizzare, ha problemi con la sua visione artistica, in particolare perché non vuole dire bugie sullo schermo. Dallo stress, si reca in un centro benessere per farsi aiutare con molti dei suoi problemi, sia professionali che personali. Mentre affronta questi problemi, ricorda la sua infanzia e fantastica su come vede le cose giocare o come spera che si giochino. Intorno a lui nel centro benessere e/o sul set ci sono molte delle persone della vita reale che verranno ritratte sullo schermo, tra cui: sua moglie Luisa che ama ma che non capisce appienosoprattutto in relazione al loro matrimonio; la sua amante Carla, l'antitesi di Luisa; e un'attrice dinome Claudia che vede come la sua salvezza finale.
