Filmed in Milan, Sicily, and New York, Alberto Lattuada’s 1962 black comedy, about a Sicilian factory supervisor living in the north who’s sent on a murderous Mafia errand when he takes his family south to meet the folks, is one of his most critically successful works. A more visually conscious stylist than most Italian commercial directors of the period, Lattuada remains largely unknown in the U.S., though in Europe he’s been touted as the great eclectic talent of the postwar Italian cinema. With Alberto Sordi. In Italian with subtitles. 105 min.
