Allegro Non Troppo ★★★ 1976 (PG)

An energetic and bold collection of animated skits set to classical music in this Italian version of Disney's “Fantasia.” Watch for the evolution of life set to Ravel's Bolero, or better yet, watch the whole darn movie. Features Nichetti (often referred to as the Italian Woody Allen, particularly by people in Italy) in the non-animated segments, who went on to write, direct, and star (he may have sold concessions in the lobby as well) in “The Icicle Thief.” 75m/C VHS, DVD . IT Maurizio Nichetti, Nestor Garay, Maria Giovannini; D: Bruno Bozzetto; W: Bruno Bozzetto, Guido Manuli, Maurizio Nichetti; C: Mario Masini.
