July 28    BESIEGED (1998)
Director: Bernardo Bertolucci Rated R (for brief sexuality)
Italy/U.K. Languages: English, Italian, Swahili 93 min.

After her husband is jailed by an African dictator, Shandurai flees to Italy and is romantically "besieged" by the Mr. Kinsky, the owner of the house she's tending. Based on the James Lasdun short story "The Siege," this romantic story examines a love that is deeper than gratification, more generous than trifle gifts, and, perhaps, is able to triumph over all.
