‘Brother’ to open Italian showcase

L.A. event runs Oct. 10-21

ROME — Daniele Luchetti’s comedy “My Brother Is an Only Child,” Italy’s biggest recent export, will open the 4th Cinema Italian Style showcase hosted by Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater, which runs Oct. 10-21.

Local hit about the bond between two siblings who during the 70s develop diametrically opposed political bents — one becomes a Communist, the other a neo-Fascist — was recently picked up by ThinkFilm for North America.

“Brother” opens in France via StudioCanal this weekend, after unspooling in Cannes and Toronto.

Paolo Virzi’s comic Napoleon biopic “N (Napoleon and Me),” Francesca Archibugi’s India-set coming-of-ager “Flying Lessons,” and docu “The Orchestra of Piazza Vittorio,” by Agostino Ferrente, about a multi-ethnic band, which will be performing live during the event, are among other titles included in this year’s Italo showcase.

Screenings will be attended by pics’ helmers and talent.

Legendary L.A.-based producer Dino De Laurentiis, groundbreaking cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and revered designer Milena Canonero — will be honored during the promotional Italo marathon organized by Cinecitta, the Italian Film Commission and the American Cinematheque.
