After WWII, Lieutenant General Okada Tasuku (Fujita Makoto) is on trial accused of executing American aircrew who carried out indiscriminate bombing towards the end of the war. As his wife Haruko (Fuji Sumiko) and his family observe in the public gallery, Okada, together with his chief defense counsel, Featherstone (Robert Lesser), insist that the indiscriminate bombing by the Americans was against international law. Regarding the trial as a “legal battle”, Okuda continues with his testimony to take full responsibility and to protect his subordinates. His attitude gradually moves American prosecutors and the judge. Okuda insists that execution was the punishment according to military discipline and not retaliation, but he is found guilty.

Movie screening: Ma che colpa abbiamo noi?: Feb. 13 2014 @ Italian Institute of Culture

ma che colpa abbiamo noi

Directed by: Carlo Verdone
Cast: Margherita Buy, Anita Caprioli, Stefano Pesce, Antonio Catania, Lucia Sardo.
Duration: 114 minutes
Genre: Romantic comedy
Language: Italian (English subtitles)
Award: David for Best screen play

Floored by the demise of the decrepit psychiatrist that guided them, the eight participants of a therapy group – each affected by a different ailment – look for a substitute.
Having verified the inadequacy of the alternative, all except one decide to continue the experience and manage themselves. The idea reveals itself not to be easy, so much so that after the first few meetings the group decides to separate. The suicide of the person who had abandoned the analysis will make them meet again and convince them to spend a week-end together: finding intimacy again will produce unexpected hopeful results contributing towards a change for many of them.
