Harold Ramis / US, 1993 / 100 min.
Today is Groundhog Day, that special day when it’s up to a groundhog to predict the length of winter. Grumpy weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is caught in time and keeps reexperiencing the day he detests. Danny Rubins and Harold Ramis' comedy in the spirit of Frank Capra means absurd plot twists and inner catharsis. Eye focuses on a curious American tradition. Screening on 35mm.
In Punxsutawney people believe that the groundhog roused during the first week of February can predict how long the winter is yet to last. Weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray), originally from Pittsburgh, but now working for local TV in Punxsutawney, is sent to report. And that while he dreamed of a career as the star reporter for one of the major American networks.
