An important film
on the meaning of love

Francesca is a young actress who is going through a deep existential crisis, heightened by the tragic death of a dear friend.
The crisis begins in the relationship with her husband Alessandro,
who has changed over the years and is now especially attentive
to the career and "social": in his subtle and constant detachment
he seems not to understand the growing loneliness of his wife.
Francesca is continuing, in the meantime, to attend the psychoanalyst Fabio, now become a close friend,
and to him he confides the constant existential nausea that is pervading her....

SIMONA DI SARNO
the protagonist

The director said about her...

"I chose Simona almost instinctively, because I seemed to catch in her eyes all the melancholy of Francesca, the protagonist of the film.
Also, when I asked her before the audition what character
she would rather play, Simona told me that she was ready for that role,
in which she was immediately identified by reading the script texts.
Her acting required a lot of inner balance,
because I had portrayed Francesca as a woman capable of emotions even violent, while being radically introverted and, therefore,
constantly measured in manifesting one’s inner pain.
A test, his, in my opinion absolutely positive,
that managed to surprise me with great joy and satisfaction.
Finally, I can well say that with her has always been good the first...!".


A FEW MINUTES WITH SIMONA DI SARNO







FABIO DESSI
co-protagonist

The director said about him...


"Extremely professional, attentive, capable.
He managed to sketch the character of Fabio - the psychoanalyst of Francesca but also his friend finally - in a meaningful intertwining
between the duty of professional ethics and his obvious attraction
to his charming patient.
Measured then - but capable of moments of high emotional content -
he knew how to outline all the inner suffering, deep,
that dwells in those places of the heart where no science of thought
will ever know how to venture without defeats".


A FEW MINUTES WITH FABIO DESSI





GLORIA D'OSVALDO
supporting actress

The director said about her...

"I chose Gloria for the uncomplicated part of a seemingly
very uninhibited young woman,
but which carries within itself a deep vein of intimate dissatisfaction.
Gloria, during the auditions, not only did she demonstrate
that she understood Sara’s character from the start,
but he also introduced that much personal inventiveness
that made it completely true,
in all its exuberance, how much in its manifest all the anxiety
of wanting to catch the fleeting moment of living".


A FEW MINUTES WITH GLORIA D'OSVALDO





RICCARDO STELLINI
supporting actor



The director said about him...

"I chose Riccardo because, in the casting audition,
he had already shown a careful understanding of the character.
I chose him though, mainly practicing the profession of model,
this would be his first experience in a feature film.
Actually my intuition has been rewarded, because Riccardo
has not only exhibited a remarkable talent,
but also a constant professional commitment in the study of the script
and in the deepening of all the psychological nuances required.


TWO MINUTES WITH RICCARDO STELLINI





VALENTINA CESARIO
supporting actress

The director said about her...

"Careful, capable, gifted with exceptional photogenia.
He interpreted all the melancholy of a life now lost in death,
but without ever exceeding in any sentimentalism.
Definitely ready for lead roles."

have shown skill, attention, interest.



the music of
MARCO SALA

...the director said of him...

"The encounter with Marco was one of the lucky and surprising cases
that sometimes happen.
Marco "dressed" this film with themes not only beautiful,
but emotionally packaged to the strict measure of each scene.
I can well say, in the end, that my film
would not have been the same without this music,
which is not merely an accompaniment,
but an intrinsic artistic expression.





PAOLA BENZI
assistant director


The director said about her ...

"A precious help, where Paola knew how to look at everything
that I myself could not see.
Passionate about photography,
she has also excellently collaborated as a cameraman,
where his innate taste for the search
for a frame beyond the lines of banality
has allowed the production of images in my opinion of great value".





PATRICK GEMINIAN
cameraman


The director said about him...

Patrick Geminian has an innate passion for the camera. I had already collaborated with him in the shooting for a trailer, and I have well placed my trust in his careful management of the image.
Great job!
