THE TIES (Lacci) (2020)– by Daniele Luchetti - Italy - 100'


Naples, early 1980’s. Aldo and Vanda go through a separation, after he reveals his affair. Their two young children are torn between their parents, in a whirlwind of resentment. But the ties that keep people together are inescapable, even without love. Now, 30 years later, Aldo and Vanda are still married.

When I read Lacci (published in English as Ties) for the first time I found in it questions that concerned me directly and characters with which it was hard not to identify. From a family history that spans thirty years and two generations, with bonds that seem more like barbed wire than ties of love, you emerge with a question: have you let your life be ruled by love? Lacci is a film about the hidden forces that bind us. It is not just love that unites people, but also what is left when love is no more. It is possible to stay together out of rancor, in shame, in dishonor, in a foolish attempt of keep your word. Lacci recounts the damage that love inflicts when it makes us suddenly change course and—worse still—when it ceases to accompany us.

THE PREDATORS (I predatori) (2020) by Pietro Castellitto – Italy - 109’

It’s early in the morning, the sea at Ostia is calm. A man knocks at the door of a woman’s house: he is going to sell her a watch. It is early in the morning again when, a few days later, a young assistant professor of philosophy will be left out of the group chosen for the exhumation of Nietzsche’s body. Two grievances. Two apparently incompatible families: the Pavone and the Vismara. Bourgeois and intellectual the former, proletarian and Fascist the second. Opposing factions that share the same jungle: Rome. A banal incident will bring the two poles into collision. And the folly of a twenty-five-year-old man will lead to a showdown that reveals everyone has a secret and no one is what they seem. And that we are all predators.
This film is a concerted effort, but the characters are unaware of it. Each of them is alone, trapped in that stage in life in which no one seems to understand you and you wish that everything would go away. Reverse course in order to revive your hopes: this is their battle. Anyway, being happy is a tough business. At times, a job for “predators.” In Federico I have catalyzed a feeling of alienation, a sense of enormous frustration that stems from the difference between what you are and what others think you are. A troubling feeling that can lead people to take extreme measures. For me, fortunately, it has led to the writing of a film. This one.

PADRENOSTRO (2020) by Claudio Noce - Italy - 121'

Rome, 1976.
Valerio (Mattia Garaci) is 10 yo kid with a fervent imagination. His life is turned upside down when he witnesses a terrorist commando attempting his father Alfonso (Pierfrancesco Favino). From that moment, fear and a sense of vulnerability mark the feelings of the whole family. During those dramatic days Valerio meets Christian (Francesco Gheghi), a compelling boy slightly older than him. Lonely, rebellious and cheeky, Christian seems to come from nowhere. That encounter, in a summer full of discoveries, will change their lives forever.
His strong, magnetic and heroic gure stands as an archetype of a whole generation of men for whom emotions were perceived solely as weakness and had to be covered up by silence. In the December of 1976, when the attack was made on my father, I was just a year and half old, enough to sense the fear but not to understand that that pain and worry were going to stay inside me for a long time. I was never able to tell him this. Writing this letter to my father, tracing the outlines of a generation of “invisible” children shrouded in the cigarette smoke of grownups, has not been easy. Trying to do it by turning private words into universal ones has been a great challenge as a filmmaker and as a man.

LIFE IS A B MOVIE (2019) by Piero Vivarelli – Italy - 90’

The unbridled life and kaleidoscopic filmography of Piero Vivarelli, who made Italian B-movies of all genres, wrote hit rock songs and penned the screenplay for Sergio Corbucci's Western "Django," adored by Quentin Tarantino, are intertwined in a portrait of an unsung postwar provocateur and revolutionary (the only non-Cuban besides Che Guevara to be given a Cuban Communist Party card signed by Fidel Castro). The creative doc is also a prism into an unexplored territory of Italian — and by extension global — pop culture and its unique vitality.
Piero Vivarelli did a lot of things:
As a music journalist he is considered one of the people who brought rock and roll to Italy; as a songwriter he wrote several hits that went around the world, such as 24 mila baci, 24,000 Kisses, covered in France by Johnny Halliday. As a film director he made movies of many different genres. He was also very passionate politically, a right-winger in his adolescence and then an early supporter of the Cuban revolution who became personally close to Fidel Castro.

THE MACALUSO SISTERS (Le sorelle Macaluso) (2020) by Emma Dante - Italy - 94'


Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia and Antonella are five sisters who live in an apartment in Palermo. They make a living by renting doves for ceremonies. On a normal day at the beach, Antonella accidentally dies. Her death is going to turn upside down their relationships for the rest of their lives.
The movie is divided into three chapters, each of which corresponds to a particular age of the five sisters who are its protagonists: childhood, adulthood and old age. The sisters are played by twelve actresses, as if each of them to have lasted into old age has had to cope with a discontinuity and a mutation in body and in features. And it is the sisters’ love for each other and for the home in which they live that keeps their entire existence going as if they were a single living organism, notwithstanding the physical death of some of them. Le sorelle Macaluso is a film about time. About memory. About things that last. About people who remain even aftertheir death. It is a film on old age as the incredible finishing line of life.
