Landmark Theatres - May

THE DOUBLE HOUR, opening Friday, April 29 at The Landmark, is at once a stark romance, a touching psychological thriller, and a story about possibilities. Sonia (Ksenia Rappoport) and Guido (Filippo Timi) might be the two loneliest people in the Italian city of Turin. A penniless maid and a chilly ex-cop, they each go about their daily routines like ghosts, both tormented by mistakes and loss from their individual pasts, unable to truly move forward with their lives in any meaningful way. But, when the two meet for the first time in the grimmest of settings—a schmaltzy speed dating event—wary flirtation blooms into desperate passion. Only a single, shocking incident, an ill-timed robbery, threatens to destroy the salvation that Sonia and Guido so quickly find in each other. La doppia ora: A second chance, a magical moment when a person makes a wish, hoping against hope for a better life, for love, for redemption. But, is wishing, as Guido suggests, only a game? Winner of 3 awards at the Venice International Film Festival (Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Italian Film). Director Giuseppe Capotondi has written an exclusive letter to Film Club members about reviving the Italian Giallo, a sexy genre that often mixed crime story, film noir, horror, erotica and psychological thriller, all in one movie. 

ALSO NEW THIS WEEK:13 ASSASSINS opens Friday, April 29 at the Nuart Theatre for an exclusive one week engagement! Cult director Takeshi Miike delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan's feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war-torn future.
