    Ettore Scola, Italian Film Director of Satire and Farce, Dies at 84

    The closest any of his films came to being autobiographical was “The Family” (1987), which instructs moviegoers in 80 years of European history from the vantage point of an apartment that housed five generations of a clan whose story is recounted by a retired professor, its last patriarch.

    “It was like a big tribe composed of people who didn’t really know each other very well but respected the rules that bound them together,” Mr. Scola recalled of his own family. “The house was like a place filled with mirrors but no windows — you looked at each other but not at the world outside.”
