CineClubDante: Two Women (in Italian La ciociara)

CineClubDante returns Wednesday the 19th of September at2.15pm.

After the short break in August, we will watch another of De Sica’s most intense and less known movies: Two Women (in Italian La ciociara).
Shot in 1960, Two Women tells the story of a woman trying to protect her young daughter from the horrors of war. It was adapted by De Sica and Cesare Zavattini from the novel of the same name written by Alberto Moravia. It stars Sophia Loren, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Eleonora Brown, Carlo Ninchi and Andrea Checchi.
The movie won the Academy Award for Best Actress for Sophia Loren. This was the first time an acting Oscar had been given for a non-English speaking performance. Loren also won the Award for Best Actress at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival. Loren won 22 international awards for Two Women.
Come and watch the movie, and talk about it with our teacher Matteo Telara
We remind you CineDanteClub is a language class, an unusual way to go deeper into the Italian culture and improve your language skills.
