UNA DOMENICA D'AGOSTO / SUNDAY IN AUGUST
Hunger, Humour and Fantasy

One Sunday in August, like so many other residents of Rome, Cesare Meloni sets off with his family to spend the day at Ostia beach. His daughter Marcella strikes up a relationship with Enrico, who shares her dream of becoming rich. On the other hand, Luciana leaves her long-standing boyfriend, Ricardo, to meet an important producer on the beach. Ricardo tries to rob from the abattoir where he works and finds himself in jail. Ercole the policeman goes to the house where his girlfriend Rosetta is employed, although maybe not for much longer since her pregnancy has put her in danger of losing her job, and she accidentally causes a fire on leaving the iron plugged in. Meanwhile, back at Ostia, and after having spent their time mutually duping each other into believing that they are aristocrats, Marcella and Enrico discover their respective origins and decide to have an affair.
BIOGRAPHY

LUCIANO EMMER

Eighteen shorts, three documentaries, and only eight fiction (three of which are irrelevant), or what actually boils down to five films, were sufficient to put this director's name down in the annals as a subtle and quick-witted sociological analyst. Endowed with a great capacity for grasping small, everyday details, his films also demonstrate a sprightly and unambiguous mise en scène befitting of the documentary genre. He left cinema for television in 1961, making a come-back with Basta, ci faccio un film in 1990.
