Back by popular demand a new 4K Restoration of Antonio Pietrangeli's "I Knew Her Well" (1965) starring Stefania Sandrelli ("Divorce Italian Style"). The plot centers on Adriana who leaves the small simple life of an Italian village to come to Rome to seek more than anything celebrity. She meets an array of colorful unsavory self-serving characters and learns how tough and challenging life in the big city is. All shot amid a soundtrack of non-stop period Italian pop. The black and white photography by Armando Nannuzzi's is ravishing.
