Story of a Love Affair
Story of a Love Affair is Michelangelo Antonioni's debut feature, a powerful statement on the delusions and violence sparked by a passionate love. A wealthy industrialist becomes curious about his trophy wife Paola's (Lucia Bose) past, and hires a private investigator. The detective discovers that she had fallen desperately in love with the handsome Guido (Massimo Girotti) as a young girl and may have participated in a crime to win his hand. After years apart, Paola and Guido reunite to deflect the investigation, and rekindle their attraction in the process.

Boccaccio '70
Four legendary Italian filmmakers direct some of Europe's biggest stars in Borraccio '70 (1962), a landmark anthology film. Mario Visconti (big Deal on Madonna Street), Franco Fellini (8 1/2), Luchino Visconti (The Leopard) and Vittorio De Sica (The Bicycle Thief) direct Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg, Romy Schneider and more through four stories of unashamed eros. Modeled on Boccaccio's Decameron , they are comic moral tales about the hypocrisies surrounding sex in 1960's Italy. Bursting with passion and sly satire, this is a glittering showcase for some of the greatest talents in movie history.

Casanova '70
Nominated for an Academy Award of Best Screenplay, Casanova '70 is a raucously funny sex romp starring Marcello Mastroianni at his charismatic peak. Directed by Italian comedy legend Mario Monicelli (Big Deal on Madonna Street), it finds army officer Andrea (Mastroianni) dealing with a particularly strange case of impotence: his libido only gets aroused in the middle of near-death experiences. Packed with bed-hopping hijinks, a parade of gorgeous actresses, and Mastroianni's hilariously dry wit, this is a colorfully ribald gem from the Golden Age of Italian comedy.
