Good-looking Carlino Vigetti is not the brightest man in the village, but he is irresistible to the local womenfolk.  So when it’s arranged for Carlino to marry his landlord’s daughter to save the family fortunes, all seems set for success – if only Carlino can mend his promiscuous ways…  A nostalgia-heavy 1930s-set tale from veteran multi award-winning Pupi Avati, The Big Heart of Girls is a delicate tragi-comedy of love, compromise and the role of women in Mussolini’s Fascist Italy inspired by the story of the director’s own grandparents.


Includes Aperitivo Peroni, Brown Brothers wines, live music & film screening.

Thursday 20 September @ Kino Cinemas
5.45pm   Drinks/Music
6.15pm   Screening

After losing faith in the education system, retired teacher and novelist Bruno has all but given up on life. Currently ghost writing a biography for a former adult star, he also tutors privately to make ends meet. But Bruno’s world is turned upside down when he learns that one of his students – a rebellious youth called Luca, is his son.  As the threat of expulsion from school looms over Luca, Bruno tries to help his secret son get his act together.   A poignant story about a man learning to become a father, and a son choosing to become a man.
