Sex Comedy – Italian Style
Northwest Film Forum

After Neorealism failed to make a significant impact on the Italy’s cinema-going public, a type of Italian film emerged that lasted from the late 1950s to the mid 1970s: Comedy – Italian Style. With elements of post-war social critique combined with comedy, one director in particular managed to satirize Italy in a highly popular way: Pietro Germi. Practically forgotten since his death in 1974, Northwest Film Forum is extremely excited to present two recently restored prints in order to re-introduce audiences to this eclectic, visionary and fearless director.
