For the sixth summer running, Park Your Cinema, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC’s) series of open-air cinema projections, welcomes the public.
This year, for the selection of films addressed to adult viewers, the SNFCC inaugurates its partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the country’s most prestigious film institution.
This summer, therefore, when our need to laugh is greater than ever, the TIFF presents a series of films that prove that comedy is, after all, a very serious matter.
A Fish Called Wanda (1988)
When the leader of a criminal gang is arrested after a successful heist, Wanda, a hedonistic con artist, goes on a mission to discover where he has hidden the loot. Her partner is Otto, paranoid and gifted with the skill of spurting random Italian phrases that act on Wanda as an aphrodisiac. Their target is the imprisoned boss’ lawyer, whom Wanda approaches in order to elicit information. Assisting them is a contract killer with a stutter and an excessive love for animals. A Fish Called Wanda is one of the most entertaining comedies of the past two decades, brimming with hilarious characters and ingenious repartee, which earned Kevin Kline the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
