Cinema Italia: Fantozzi (1975)

Short url:

FANTOZZI (1975) * Directed by Luciano Salce * 103 min * In Italian with English subtitles * doors open at 20:00, film starts at 20:30. After the film, please engage in sharing comments, ideas, and inspiration with the host(s) of the evening!

A cult film that entered the Italian pop culture, Fantozzi is a sharp critique of white collar's alienation in modern capitalism, and how the only way t escape is breaking the rules, but, even then, success is far from being guaranteed. Structured in ten episodes, it rotates upon the misadventures of Ugo Fantozzi, his relations with his wife, his colleague Filini, Miss Silvani and others, in situations like Christmas, New Year's Eve, a trip on the Alps, and so on. A distorted portrait of Italy during its industrialization and the paradoxes of modernisation, which has something to say outside Italy and to contemporaries too.
