An Italian crime-comedy film, Big Deal on Madonna Street captures everyday life for a group of simple-minded criminals preparing for a major robbery as they confront a changing society. Combining comedy with a sense of Neo-realism (via its landscapes of destroyed buildings and engagement with poverty and social issues), the film reflected an innovative direction for Italian cinema and featured several future stars at the beginning of their careers, including Vittorio Gassman and Renato Salvatori. In Italian with English subtitles. (16mm. Presentation)
