Theatrical Trailer (VOSI):
BASIC CLASSICS! Two for the road (1967)
This beautiful movie, elegant and twilight, starring Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney, with a immortal soundtrack created by Henri Mancini (Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tifanny’s, Charade, Touch of Evil… ) and directed by Stanley Donen is an absolute classic. A study of marital bliss very refined but sad. A sample of the great pain that can cause us to return to the places where we were happy. Essential!

Theatrical Trailer (VO):
BASIC CLASSICS! On dangerous ground (1951)
This picture looks as the typical hidden gem. Directed by Nicholas Ray, this is a sample of the tribute to Ida Lupino, a singular women, actress and not well known director. One of the few relevant female directors during the golden ages of American Cinema. We can watch films directed by her but, in this case, this is a film starring her. Enjoy it!
