Dear friend of PI-Philly,

Please join us for the next movie of our series offered in collaboration with Penn Cinema and Media Studies.

WHAT: Il gioiellino...
Andrea Molaioli, 2011

WHEN: Wednesday, February 21 6.15pm

WHERE: 401 Fisher Bennett
3340 Walnut Street
Philadelphia

In Italian with English subtitles
Free Entrance

"In 2003, Italian dairy giant Parmalat went bankrupt, owing around £13bn. A fraud trial saw its chairman, Castilo Tanzi, sentenced to ten years in prison. It was one of the first indications of the coming international scandal in finance. Now Andrea Moleioli has fictionalised the story, creating a taut thriller with dark comedic undertones that serves as a warning of further disasters to come." (Jennie Kermode)

"Michele Placido’s film liberally recounts the real life events of the Magliana Gang, which between 1977 and 1992 ran the most ambitious criminal operation ever seen in Rome. They dominated the Italian capital by controlling all drug, blackmail, prostitution and arms trafficking. Their ties to the Mafia and politics transformed the gang into a kind of "crime agency” at the service of the highest bidder, and in turn got them involved with the rogue secret service and the extreme right in the most dramatic moments of those years, from the kidnapping of Aldo Moro to the Bologna train station massacre" (Cineuropa review)

"Consciously basing much of his style on Italo crime pics from the ’70s (with an indisputable indebtedness to Coppola and Scorsese), helmer Placido uncannily captures the style and swagger of the era. But what gives “Crime Novel” its structure is in the way political events impact the lives of these antiheroes, first brought to full prominence with the kidnapping and murder of politico Aldo Moro in 1978".
