Description

An aimless young troublemaker, Alessandro (Carpenzano), squanders his days gambling and getting into fights, and he often spends his nights in jail. With few prospects, he begrudgingly accepts a job as a companion to Giorgio (Montaldo), an elderly poet suffering from Alzheimer's. On their daily walks, the two banter and become friends, and Alessandro quickly learns more about this forgotten poet as the old man's memory drifts. After learning a secret from Giorgio's past, Alessandro and his friends work to uncover the mystery of this tale, an unexpected history lesson and a touching coming-of-age adventure.

This little gem of Italian cinema, nominated for three prestigious Nastro d'Argento awards and winner of one, will make you laugh and cry. A film not to be missed, with unforgettable performances by Andrea Carpenzano and Giuliano Montaldo.

This movie was originally shown at our 10th edition of the IFF in 2018.
