film italian film fest
Saturday, October 28, 2023
Il Cenacolo has again reserved the small private room at La Toscana restaurant in San Rafael at 5:00 PM Saturday, October 28, 2023, for an early Italian dinner before the 8:00 PM showing of “Come un gatto in tangentiale” (Like a Cat on the Freeway), a comedy. La Toscana is about 20 minutes north of the GG Bridge and serves up very good Italian fare both traditional and unusual. Bring a wine if you like. The dining room holds 14, maybe 16 max, and reservations are first come, first served. For directions contact the restaurant website www.ristorantelatoscana.com or Google it for your car or phone. Contact Dave Giannini Sr. at [email protected] or 415-713-9219.
The movie is indeed funny in the raucous Italian style. Monica, one of two kleptomaniac twin sisters, (you can see where this is headed) ends up in jail and calls Giovanni for help. To get Monica out of jail, Giovanni succeeds in replacing her detention with community service in a Catholic shelter in Rome led by Don Davide, who is as handsome as he is pious. Enjoy the subtitled trailer below.
Purchase your movie tickets directly at www.italianfilm.com The showing at 8 is at Angelica Hall on the grounds of Dominican University in San Rafael, about a 10 minute drive from the restaurant. The film website has directions to Angelica Hall or visit www.Dominican.edu. Hope to see you there!
