Italian filmmaker Vittorio De Sica is revered for his prodigious contributions to neorealism, as Shoeshine, Umberto D, and Bicycle Thieves have made their respective marks in cinema. A digital restoration of Il Boom, a 1963 comedy drama that has never before been released, is now playing at the Ahrya Fine Arts in Beverly Hills (July 21-27). Details on the film is featured after the jump!
If you’re a movie buff, cinephile, and just anywhere near Los Angeles this weekend, I highly recommend checking out Army of Shadows. Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Cercle Rouge, Le Samourai), the WWII thriller set in Nazi-occupied France has an exclusive engagement starting today at the Ahrya Fine Arts Movie Theater in Beverly Hills.
