Welcome to this Saturday, January 20th, when we celebrate World Italian Cinema Day, in which Italian cinematography is strengthened and enhanced abroad. We can only celebrate it by giving you tips on what to see with our guide On TV tonight.
We start on Rai 1 with the second episode of the talent show “Nip” directed by Carlo Conti, Such and such. Also this evening the participants will imitate singers of the caliber of Gianni Morandi, Dua Lipa, Vasco Rossi, Spice Girls, Iva Zanicchi, Aretha Franklin, Fabrizio De André, James Blunt, Max Pezzali and Christina Aguilera. As always, you will be judged by the three historical judges Loretta Goggi, Giorgio Panariello and Cristiano Malgioglio to which a surprise quarter is added. Guests of the evening will be Leonardo Pieraccioniwho will present his latest film “Pare Quite Paris” and Giorgio Panarielloboth very good friends of Conti.
Unlike Rai prime time, there is a historical program that has crossed 20 sources. You have mail. The success of the last episode with 31.1% shares crowned the success Maria De Filippi as queen of Saturday evening. Also tonight we will find at the heart of the episode the stories of ordinary people and the presence of two guests: Maria's lifelong friend, the actress Sabrina Ferilli and the former dancer-moderator of the Amici School, Stefano De Martino. The four postmen delivered the letters: Marcello Mordino, Gianfranco Apicerni, Andrea Offredi and Giovanni Vescovo.
This first program summary ends with the documentary about Nove entitled Queen – Days of Our Lives. The British production is divided into two parts: the first phase, which lasts from 1964 to 1979, in which we see the band emerge little by little until its release in 1968 Freddie Mercury and the name change in 1970 from Smile to Queen. From album to album, the band climbs into the charts worldwide, also thanks to their musical diversity. The second from the 80s, the highlight of which will be the Live AID concert from 1985 until Mercury's death on November 24, 1991, the day after he made public that he was suffering from HIV. His death was celebrated with tributes around the world and the Queen continued to honor his memory.
Tonight on TV: Films from the digital terrestrial program
Tonight we continue the space dedicated to cinema and feature films. As usual, we recommend two titles. The first on Rete 4 is inspired by Diane Ackerman's book entitled “The Jews of the Warsaw Zoo”. The lady from the Warsaw Zoo. Although the film is very faithful to the book, there is an anachronism regarding the presence of the white lion in the zoo: in fact, it was only in 1975 that it was possible to begin captive breeding. So his presence is not entirely legal.
Instead, on Rai we find 4 films that won Best Director at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in the “Un Certain Regard” category. The Secrets of Wind River. It grossed a total of $45 million on a budget of just $11 million. The Indian reservation in which the story unfolds actually exists and is located in Wyoming, where two ethnic groups of Native Americans live: the Eastern Shoshone and the Northern Arapaho.
The lady from the Warsaw Zoo at 9:31 p.m. on Rete 4
In Warsaw at the height of the Second World War, the zoologist Jan Żabinski (Johan Heldenbergh) runs the Warsaw Zoo with the help of his wife Antonina (Jessica Chastain). There are many species that populate the zoo, including rare and exotic animals, so much so that even the director of the Berlin Zoo Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl) As soon as the Germans invade Poland, he visits him immediately. The man is not only fascinated by Antonina, but also brings the most valuable animals to Berlin and kills the others. After convincing Lutz to convert the zoo into a pig farm to feed the German troops, they decide to help the city's Jews imprisoned in the ghetto. Using the pretext of supporting himself by collecting waste in the ghetto, he hides women, men and children under piles of garbage and then places them in the zoo's underground cages. Will the couple manage to save the Jewish families by helping them escape?
The Secrets of Wind River at 9:22 p.m. on Rai 4
The forester and hunter Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) has just found the Native American's body in the snow Natalie Hanson (Kelsey Asbille) without shoes or appropriate clothing. The inexperienced FBI agent is sent to find out who the girl's murderer and rapist might have been. Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen). Since there are insufficient police on site, Jane asks Cory for help as an expert on the reservation, who accepts because Natalie was the best friend of her daughter Emily, who had died under similar circumstances three years earlier. But as you get closer to the truth, shady dealings are uncovered, putting them in serious danger.

Shows on TV tonight
One last little tip. On Rai 5 we find the theatrical performance of Andrea Pennacchi included in the Omero Never Cries project and from the title A little odyssey. The aim is to tell the work of the Greek singer based on personal and school memories with paraphrases between Bush and Agamemnon, between Homer and Kill Bill, judo masters and heroes of mythology. A modern key to telling a great classic.
- Homer never cries 9:15 p.m. on Rai 5
