We invite you to the screening of the cult Italian comedy «Fantozzi» organized by PostArt

Year: 1975

Director: Luciano Salce

Genre: satirical tragicomedy

Starring: Paolo Villaggio

Lots of humor, gags in every frame, Paolo Villaggio’s signature buffoonery all this has become the hallmark of a series of films about the loser accountant.

In the movie, it is not clowning that makes you laugh, but a well-constructed satire, which is still relevant today. This raises the question of being a ‘little man’ who is trying hard to preserve their dignity.

Admission is free on the condition of prior registration.

The mob\vie is screened in Ukrainian.
