Rialto Summer Cinema premiered with great success!
Coming up next week with two powerful films
Belle Epoque on 24/6 &
the premiere of Siege on Lipetri Street on 26/6
Rialto’s Summer Cinema kickstarted its screenings in a full house place leaving great impressions to everyone who had the chance to join the screenings and the new drive – in experience in a beautiful and safe environment. The great response of the public also showed how much we have missed the live cultural events which beautify our lives.
Tickets for the tonight’s screening of Marios Piperidis' film Smugglin Hendricks are already sold out, while cinephile have to rush, as only a few tickets have left for next week's screenings.
On Wednesday 24 June will be screened the romantic comedy La Belle Époque by Nicolas Bedos (France, 2019, 115’)
The Story: Victor and Marianne live in an estranged marriage. He has completely abandoned himself and she has been treating him with contempt. Seeking a way out from his emotionally hostile present, Victor gets a chance to travel back to his own youth, in 1974 at La Belle Époque, the famous French bistro where he first met 20-year-old Marianne, the girl who took his breath away and changed his life for good. A charming and witty French comedy about a man who travels back in time to relive the special moment that transformed his life.
Directed by: Nicolas Bedos
Cast: Daniel Auteuil, Guillaume Canet, Doria Tillier, Fanny Ardant et al.
Follows on Friday 26 June, the Cyprus premiere of Stavros Pamballis movie, Siege on Liperti Street. (Greece, Cyprus, 2019, 88’)
The movie awarded with five prizes at 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival: Fischer Audience Award, Greek Society of Film Critics Award (PEKK), International Federation of Film Critics Award (FIPRESCI) and ERT (National Broadcaster) Award, First and Second Prize
The Story: Located at the UN border dividing the Greek from the Turkish Cypriot side, the film captures the story of a family living on the verge of poverty and hunger, with the unemployed husband and father, an ex-military, struggling to get by. Confronted with his fragile soul, he has the support of his wife who desperately tries to take care of her old father-in-law and her two young children. In addition to the national and financial crisis, the debt-ridden family is also confronted with the contempt of the public services, which seem to ignore the father’s dismissal from the army due to psychological problems.
A tale of twists combining elements of police, action and social drama genres, “sprinkled” with a good dose of humour.
