Dear All,
the French Academy in Rome - Protected content decided to dedicate the XIII° edition of the open air movie festival to Paolo Virzi, an Italian film director, writer and producer. He received wide acclaim from critics and audiences alike: the jury of the Venice International Film Festival presided over by Jane Campion, awarded Paolo Virzì the Jury Grand Prix.
This movie is named after a neighbourhood in Livorno, is one of Virzì’s most personal films. The lead role is played by Edoardo Gabbriellini, one of the new Italian film talents discovered by Virzi. Despite of its strong ties to local accents and lifestyle.
Story of young and shy Piero growing up in a popular area of Livorno (Leghorn) that has the same name as Piero's nickname ("Ovosodo" - "Boiled egg") from his childhood until marriage and coming of age. Mostly a story about all the people that changed his life: Giovanna, the teacher that pushes him to study, his best friend Tommaso, his great love Lisa who will definitively sail away. It's also a story about all the disillusions and compromises in finding one's place in life.
With Nicoletta Braschi, Edoardo Gabbriellini, Claudia Pandolfi, Regina Orioli, Marco Cocci.
Please take note that the movie is in Italian.
Looking forward seeing you
