RETURN TO ITALY is a new film cycle, born from a collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and Cinéma du Musée, dedicated to the discovery of the new production of Italian cinema by proposing the latest films by established directors such as Moretti, Di Costanzo, Segre and Martone.

The selection aims to highlight different approaches to the 7th art through the cultural, social and geographical diversity of Italy. A program of never-before-seen films, presented every first Thursday of the month, that shows us how Italian cinema knows, today as in the past, how to challenge us, move us and make us laugh. Back to Italy! This is THE rendez-vous for contemporary Italian cinema in Montreal.


Special rate 2 for 1 at $14 (available at cinema box office only).


Presented Out of Competition at 2021 Venice Film Festival.

An old prison built in the 19th century, located in a remote and unspecified part of the Italian territory, is being decommissioned. As a result of bureaucratic holdups the transfers have been blocked and a dozen inmates are left, along with a few guards, waiting to be sent to new destinations. In a suspended atmosphere, the rules that keep them separate are slackened and new forms of relationship emerge among the remaining men.
