Sat, Apr 27 10:00 AM (127 min)

In the name of the Italian People (In Nome del popolo Italiano)

Sat, Apr 27 3:30 PM (102 min)
Set in early 1970s Rome, a city of rotting garbage and moral decay, this rarely screened piece of political buffoonery stars Vittorio Gassman as a vainglorious industrialist who would sooner commit his father to an insane asylum than face charges in the murder of a young girl. His foil, played by Ugo Tognazzi, is the cynically bemused magistrate bent on holding him accountable not only for this sordid crime, but for the venal sins of an entire populace.
