What Scoundrels Men Are! (Gli uomini, che mascalzoni…)

(Italy/1932—directed by Mario Camerini)

Before becoming one of the world’s most renowned directors with such classics as The Bicycle Thief and Umberto D, Vittorio De Sica was an actor and screen heartthrob. In this charming romantic comedy – an early Italian sound film shot on location in Milan - De Sica plays a chauffeur desperately in love with a salesgirl (Lia Franca); he finds himself in hot water when he tries to impress her with his boss’s car. (67 min.)

The 17th annual “Week of Italian Language in the World” (La Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo) celebration – an annual event organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – focuses this year on the great legacy of Italian movies, and is presented in partnership with the Consulate of Italy in Detroit and Istituto Luce Cinecittà.
