Blame Freud directed by Paolo Genovese (Italy) 2014 follows the challenging pursuit of love by three sisters and their psychoanalyst father. It touches on difficult issues with a light touch, primarily from a woman’s perspective, inspired by American romantic comedy.
Up To The World directed by Allessandro Lunardelli (Italy) 2013 definitely takes place in a man’s world periodically punctuated by outbursts of rage. It deals with a fraternal relationship as one brother pursues his younger sibling who is following a romantic infatuation.
Both films were screened during the 2014 New Italian Cinema mini-festival at the Vogue Theatre in San Francisco, an annual event presented by the San Francisco Film Society.
