Duck in Orange Sauce (Salce, 1975): Cine Lumiere, 2pm

This rarely screened Monica Vitti film will be introduced by film scholar Richard Dyer, who will talk on the life and career of the Italian actress.

Cine Lumiere introduction:
After his wife Lisa leaves him for another man, Livio forms an elaborate plan to bring them back together by inviting his estranged wife, his French love rival Jean-Claude, and his secretary Patty on a weekend away. Monica Vitti’s performance as Lisa won her a fourth David di Donatello award for Best Actress, cementing her reputation as the “Queen of Italian cinema”, especially for her roles in comedies for which she is so fondly remembered in Italy.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
