WILD STRAWBERRIES: THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER

Director: ERNST LUBITSCH

99 minutes, U.S.A., 1940, Black and White, 35mm


Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s.

If James Stewart as a curmudgeonly character reminds you of the best in Christmas film, well this one is just the thing to whet your appetite. Based on Hungarian playwright Miklós László’s drama, and the inspiration for Nora Ephron’s You’ve Got Mail, this comic gem is set in pre-war Budapest. Gift shop workers Klara and Alfred bicker their way through the days in mutual loathing while their outside lives are enlivened by their anonymous pen pals with whom they are falling in love. No Christmas parcels for guessing the outcome, but there’s plenty still to smile at in this irresistible romantic comedy.

€3.85 incl regular tea/coffee before the screening.

Also screening as part of Wild Strawberries is Joyeux Noel on the 31st of December at 11.00.

This is screening as part of IFI Festive Favourites, our season of family favourites and classics in December.
