Tuesday, November 9, 2010

“Bitter Rice” (1949), directed by Giuseppe De Santis, is one classic foreign flick will not leave a bad taste in your mouth. In fact, it’s quite the savory and rare delicacy, as evidenced by the fact that it’s currently not available on DVD in North America.

Fortunately, St. Xavier University is presenting this film on Thursday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. at McGuire Hall absolutely free as part of its 2010-11 film series—the focus of which is on the experience of labor round the world (previous St. Xavier showings this fall included Chaplin’s “Modern Times” and Gregory Nava’s unforgettable “El Norte”).
