After having written the script of the films Il Sorpasso (1962) and 15 From Rome (I mostri) (1963) directed by one of his Italian compatriots Dino Risi, Ettore Scola got behind the camera in 1964 with Let's Talk About Women (Se permettete parliamo di donne) and had a string of successes, from the Best Director Award in Cannes for Ugly, Dirty and Bad (Brutti, sporchi e cattivi) (1976) to the Silver Bear Award for Le Bal (1984) in the Berlin International Film Festival. Here are three good reasons to go and see the screening of We All Loved Each Other So Much (C'eravamo Tanto Amati) by this great filmmaker who died last January.

For its audacious and unique director

Ettore Scola, a committed filmmaker, always defended ordinary people and dropouts in his films. He criticised the living conditions in the shanty towns around Rome in Ugly, Dirty and Bad (Brutti, sporchi e cattivi) (1976), and the persecution of homosexuals in A Special Day (Una giornata particolare) (1977). In We All Loved Each Other So Much (C'eravamo Tanto Amati), he gave a voice to the communists and socialists who had been forced to leave the government by the Christian Democrats.

 

For the representation of a resistant Italy

The film takes us to the heart of Italy just after the war in 1944. Ettore Scola used eclectic characters to illustrate a resistant generation who advocated social values, a far cry from the ideas promoted by a society of overconsumption that would invade the country in the Sixties.

 

For its timeless and universal theme

We All Loved Each Other So Much stages the friendship between a communist, an intellectual film buff and an idealistic lawyer. The story begins with them being attached to the same principles and convinced of their complicity, but they end up becoming estranged from each other due to the changing political conditions and times.

Because this is the last screening under the stars at the Cinéma de la Plage 2016!
