COMPANY HIGHLIGHTS

 

CAPRI REVOLUTION  2018 

Format:            Feature film

Genre:              Drama

Director:          Mario Martone

Screenplay:     Ippolita Di Majo e Mario Martone

The Gulf Leopardi contemplated in the final scene of Il Giovane favoloso (Leopardi) is the setting for Mario Martone’s latest film. Nature and progress, the themes of La Ginestra (The Broom) which are so vital in our own day, return to the fore 80 years later in the utopian energy of the young people whom destiny has brought together on the Homeric island of Capri. The year 1914, and Italy is about to go to war. A commune of North Europeans has found on Capri the ideal place to live their lives and practise their art. But the island has its own powerful identity, in the person of a young woman, a goatherd named Lucia (Marianna Fontana). The film describes the encounter between Lucia, the commune, headed by Seybu (Reinout Scholten van Aschat), and the young village doctor (Antonio Folletto). And it describes a unique island, whose Dolomite cliffs plunge into the waters of the Mediterranean, and which at the start of the 20th century acted like a magnet for all those driven by ideals of liberty and progress, such as the Russians whom Maxim Gorky, in exile on Capri, was preparing for the revolution.

LORO 2018

Format:            Feature film

Genre:              Drama

Director:          Paolo Sorrentino

Screenplay:      Paolo Sorrentino, Umberto Contarello

LORO, a film in two parts, is a fictional story, a sort of costume drama, which narrates probable or invented facts that took place in Italy, between 2006 and 2010. Using a variety of characters, LORO seeks to sketch, through glances or intuitions, a moment of history – now definitively closed – which, in a very synthetic vision of events, might be defined as amoral and decadent, but also extraordinarily vital. And LORO also seeks to describe certain Italians, simultaneously new and old. Souls in an imaginary, modern purgatory who decide, on the basis of heterogeneous impulses such as ambition, admiration, love, self-interest, personal advantage, to try to revolve around a sort of paradise in flesh and blood: a man by the name of Silvio Berlusconi.

Is it acceptable to swindle the state when the state swindles you? This is the doubt that grips Claudia, a young art restorer who only manages to make ends meet thanks to her grandmother’s pension, because the Superintendence is late paying her. When her grandmother dies suddenly, bankruptcy seems to be looming, and so Claudia, with the complicity of her staff, freezes her grandmother so she can continue to collect her pension until the state pays her what she is due. The solution to her problems seems finally to be close, when Simone Recchia, the most incorruptible - and clumsiest - officer in the Tax Police, falls hopelessly in love with Claudia. Amidst ingenious deceptions, disguises and misunderstandings, the young art restorer’s scam will begin to melt like a frozen grandmother in the sun.
