Marina | 2013 | M | 1 hour 58 min

A gloriously entertaining biopic that tells the true story of beloved musician Rocco Granata’s early life. In 1948, in Calabria, southern Italy, poor local worker Toto leaves his wife Ida and two children to work in the Belgian mines. But like countless others, instead of returning after a few years as planned, his family are forced to join him and adjust to a new life as immigrants in a foreign country. It is here Toto’s only son Rocco discovers his sole joys lie in young love and the music that will eventually immortalise him.

Live music and $10 pizza specials from 6.30pm, the film begins at 7.30pm.

Lavazza Italian Film Festival will be held at Palace Cinemas, Northbridge, Northbridge Piazza, and Luna Palace Cinemas, Fremantle. For full information about the Lavazza Italian Film Festival, see
