Marco Bellocchio’s powerful film GOOD MORNING, NIGHT (Buongiorno, Notte), which features a soundtrack almost exclusively made up of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album, is finally getting a UK cinema release this month.

The film, at selected cinemas from November 19th, is based on the true story of the kidnapping of Italy’s former Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978. Bellocchio’s screenplay won the Prize for Outstanding Individual Contribution at the Venice Film Festival and the film won the European Film Academy Fipresci Prize in 2003.

The film was released in Italy last year, and appeared on DVD in that country in February this year. A mix of colour and black & white, the film is in Italian with English subtitles, and has been critically acclaimed for its powerful portrayal of the subject matter.

Rome, 1978. A young woman, Chiara (Maya Sansa) moves into a large apartment in a quiet suburb with her husband, Ernesto (played the director’s son, Pier Giorgio Bellocchio). She works as a librarian for the government and has a colleague, Enzo. He asks her about her private life but she gives him no straight answers... in secret she is a member of the extreme terrorist underground, the Red Brigade. Her quiet life masks one of the biggest kidnaps in Italian history, the kidnap of Aldo Moro, who is imprisoned in the apartment.

Our thanks to Jason Pyke for letting us know about this film release.
