Here is my pick for quality IFC film, titled “Vincere” coming soon “hopefully” to a theatre near you on 3/19/10 . It is an Italian film by Marco Bellocchio’s (“Fists in the Pocket”) which portrays the life of Benito Mussolini (Filippo Timi), and the woman who was his secret wife and the mother of his abandoned child (Giovanna Mezzogiorno).
The film premiered at the 2009 Cannes, Telluride, Toronto, New York, AFI film festivals, and received awards for Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Actor at the Chicago IFF.
I cannot wait to see it, I hope it lands in a theatre in San Francisco for my sake. Stay tuned for my official review should I get a chance to view it.
