A Magnificent Haunting

Sunday 2nd March 6:15 PM - Theatre By The Lake
A Magnificent Haunting
Director:Ferzan Ozpetek
Cert:15 Year: Length:105mins
Country:Italy Language:Italian
Aspiring actor Pietro (Elio Germano) can't believe his luck when he bags his dream Rome apartment. It's already occupied by the ghosts of a theatrical troupe who vanished during WW2. A gentle comedy about a gay man's attachment to old-school notions of romance, Ferzan Ozpetek's film is reminiscent of Woody Allen at his most whimsical. Nothing happens that's overly dramatic – even the tragedy is treated lightly – but the amiability is infectious.

Winner, Audience Award, Moscow FF (2012)
Winner, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress, Italian Golden Globe (2012).

Thanks to Peccadillo Pictures

Critics

“It coasts on its charm so much that Ozpetek doesn't even bother resolving half of his subplots. ”

Total Film

“Charming, funny and just a little twisted”
