The Life Ahead
La vita davanti a sé
Film legend Sophia Loren returns to the screen in this moving drama linking the Holocaust and today’s Immigration crisis. In the Italian port city of Bari, streetwise 12-year-old Senegalese orphan Momo (Ibrahima Gueye) has ambitions to make his fortune in the underworld of the town’s shady alleyways. One day, he steals a bag from the elderly Madame Rosa (Sophia Loren), a Holocaust survivor who makes a meagre living raising the children of sex workers. When Momo is forced to apologize to Rosa, she reluctantly agrees to take him in temporarily and the two lonely individuals forge a deep and unconventional bond. The Life Ahead is directed by Edoardo Ponti and adapted by Ponti, Ugo Chiti from Romain Gary’s novel The Life Before Us.
Please note, these shows are your exclusive opportunity to enjoy The Life Ahead on the big screen prior to its bow on Netflix later this month.
