IL BOOM is a hilarious, one of a kind, bittersweet Italian comedy from groundbreaking director Vittorio De Sica (Bicycle Thieves, Umberto D), set during the Italian economic miracle which transformed the country in the span of a decade, from the late 50s to the onset of the 70s.

Giovanni (ALBERTO SORDI from The Best of Enemies) lives far beyond his means to provide for his wife’s worldly needs (GIANNA MARIA CANALE from I Vampiri). Nearly insolvent and terribly worried at the idea of losing his wife, he thinks of committing suicide when an ad gives him hope again: a rich man is offering a life changing amount of money to anyone able to give him one of his eyes.

Thanks to our friends at Studiocanal, we have 3 copies of the film to give away. To win this wonderful classic comedy please answer the following :
