Momo also knows other playmates: Enzo, Bruno, Livia and little Chicco, who prepare a house for her in an ancient amphitheater, and the Cassiopeia tortoise she found on the street. Until one day the mysterious Gray Lords arrive in the city and convince people, such as the naive barber Osvaldo, that he doesn’t have much time left to live.

Matinee formula: snack + film
Orphaned at the age of nine, James is entrusted to two unscrupulous aunts who force him to do the heaviest work. One day James meets a mysterious gentleman who gives him a bag of green tongues. James spreads his tongues in front of a peach tree and shortly thereafter a peach of over six meters in diameter is born from one of the branches of the tree. While the aunts think about how to take advantage of the event, the little one bites the fruit, enters it and gets acquainted with a group of insects living there. Based on the beautiful tale of Roald Dahl, the fantasy film begins and ends with the protagonist in flesh and blood, inserted in a real world, even if strongly stylized. But soon the story turns into an animated puppet story, the result of an adventure halfway between dream and spell.

MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO by Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 1988, 86 ‘
Matinee formula: snack + film
The little sisters Satsuki and Mei move with their father to the countryside, to be close to their mother who is hospitalized in a nearby hospital. They will make the acquaintance of some spirits of the woods, including the gigantic Totoro. A delicate hymn to the discovery of nature as a thaumaturgical element and a poem about the enchantment of childhood that manages to embellish even pain with its purity. Although silent, Totoro is one of the most expressive, rich and touching characters born from the mind of the brilliant Japanese filmmaker. The protagonist of the film also became the mascot of the Ghibli studio. A feast for the eyes to see the film on the big screen.

The film, made by Miyazaki’s students, maintains the freshness of the stories of Studio Ghibli and a fast and colorful drawing.
