nessuno posterA lieto fine - Happy ending

2021 marks the 7th consecutive year of the Italian Cultural Institute’s fruitful collaboration with the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, i.e. the cultural hub of the Liverpool City Council. A collaboration that is expressed with the organization of the screening of movies focussing on contemporary Italian productions.

This year’s movie series is called A lieto fine - Happy ending, with a clear reference to the choice of "light" feature films, not particularly challenging, which want to herald a gradual resumption of all economic and cultural activities, which have unavoidably slowed down and/or have been confined to private settings due to the Covid pandemic, which finally seems to be slowing down its impact on the social life of the population.


Nessuno mi può giudicare (Escort in Love)
(Massimiliano Bruno, 2011, 95’)

With: Paola Cortellesi, Raoul Bova, Rocco Papaleo

Alice lives in a beautiful villa. She has a husband who makes a lot of money, a nine-year-old son and three servants who happen to be immigrants. She is superficial,nessuno interna haughty and racist. But everything changes the day her husband gets killed in an accident: the young woman suddenly finds herself debt-ridden. Forced to leave their magnificent house, she goes to live in a small apartment in a working-class neighbourhood.

To repay her debts she also has to find work. When she gets to know Eva, a call girl who works in the West End of the town, she follows her example. In parallel, during her free time, Alice meets a certain number of good people in her new area and becomes closer to a man named Giulio.

Actress Paola Cortellesi won the 2011 David di Donatello for Best Actress for her performance as Alice.
