One film that I definitely recommend for summer viewing is Pranzo di ferragosto (mid-August lunch). Ferragosto is a special day in the Italian calendar and this film sums it up beautifully. I saw it two years ago and it came as an unexpected treat.
The protagonist of the film, Gianni Di Gregorio, has written and stars in a new film The Salt of Life (recommended by the Guardian), out in the UK on 12 August.
