Film club is no loose cannon

Loose Cannons.
Loose Cannons.

LOUTH Film Club are showing engaging Italian comedy drama Loose Cannons on Monday, April 16.

Beautifully filmed, in and around the Puglian town of Lecce, Mine Vaganti, to give the film its original title, gently mocks Italian (or at least southern Italian) family values.

The younger of two brothers wants to come out as gay and also to escape the family pasta business he is expected to take over, but he’s thwarted from doing so in a most unexpected way.

Loose Cannons, in Italian with subtitles, is certificate 12A.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome, paying the normal Playhouse Cinema ticket prices.

The club’s programme of films, up to January 2013, is available, free, from Off The Beaten Tracks record shop at 36 Aswell Street (closed on Thursdays) or from Louth Library or the Playhouse.

The club’s website — — also has details of its forthcoming films.
