Cineforum online – Risate di Gioia

We invite all Italian language and movie lovers to Cineforum online with Marzia Ruta.

On the program: Risate di gioia by Mario Monicelli (1960).

You will love it if:

? You have an A2 level or higher: Italian subs are available and you can stop, rewind, rewatch the film as many times as you want.

? If you loved the shiny Fellini’s Dolce Vita, you will like this film even more: “risate di gioia” is the dark, grotesque side of Dolce Vita.

? If you want to see Anna Magnani in all of her glorious talent and Totò – the most famous mask of the Italian comedy – in one of his most unforgettable roles.

? If a new year must be a new beginning, no matter what. Especially if the previous year has been a total disaster


This is a little cousin of Taalhuis’ well-known Cineforum, but it works slightly different now:

1) Students will be given a link to the movie via email (one week before the lesson). With this link, you can watch the movie as many times as you want. But you have to watch the movie BEFORE the lesson.

2) Then on Monday, January 25 at 17.30-19.00 you’re invited to the (online) conversation class about the movie (in Italian). Marzia will organize activities where you can share your opinions, talk about the movie, the characters, and so on.

The class is going to take place via ZOOM!

Deadline for registration: January 21 (if you register after, we cannot guarantee that you’ll get a link to the movie in time).

IMPORTANT. Please mention your language level on the registration form!
