Fleapit Cinema

Friday 5th October 7.30 for 8pm  at Westerham Hall ‘Don Camillo’ Don Camillo has been on our hit list since Season 1 and is finally available…Giovannino Guareschi’s comic Don Camillo novels are both unmistakably Italian and sublimely universal.  The battles of an atheist, communist mayor and a Catholic priest in a small town in northern Italy are as Everyman and Everywhere as one can get. This is the first cinematic outing of the battling duo, played with great, and comic, distinction by Fernandel and Cervi both individually and as a wonderfully compatible double-act. It’s also a film of some narrative and cinematic substance and shows how comedy can be thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking. The film was released in Italian and French versions – we’re showing the former.
