The Italian Cultural Institute of New Delhi invites you to watch Italian films on 18 – 19 March in the Garden of Embassy of Italy in India.
- 18 March | Il traditore (The traitor)
In the early 1980’s, an all out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses. Tommaso Buscetta, a made man, flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home in Italy, scores are being settled, and Buscetta’s allies are killed off one after another. Arrested and then extradited by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change the entire story of the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.
- 18 March | Il racconto dei racconti (Tale of Tales)
Inspired by the fairy tales of medieval Naples, Tale of Tales is an epic vision of cinema. From the bitter quest of a jealous Queen (Salma Hayek) who forfeits the life of her husband, to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of a King (Vincent Cassel), to a King obsessed with a giant Flea leading to heartbreak for his young daughter, these stories weave the beautiful with the grotesque, creating a stunning and unique work of gothic imagination. A film on obsession and egoism.
