35mm print “Often hilarious… Nanni Moretti wrote, directed, and stars in this 1984 Italian comedy set at an alternative high school so liberal minded that it has a psychotherapist on staff to treat the faculty. A neurotic math teacher, Moretti wants the relationships around him to be as harmonious as his numbers (his voyeuristic scrutiny of couples across the terrace in his apartment complex deliberately evokes Rear Window), but when a comely colleague (Laura Morante) returns his love he becomes jealous and mistrustful.” – Chicago Reader
