foot inside Venice Film Festival Authors’ Days, exclusively for Spazio Alfieri from Thursday February 17 at 9.15 p.m. with the director’s guest on Tuesday February 22 at 6 p.m.
The third movie Cerro de Caro Confirms the talent of the director who has distinguished himself by a small cult The history of spaghetti JuliaWritten by the director with the lead actress Rosa Palaciano, It talks about characters on the margins of society, and confinement is found around the character of Julia, a female character who seems extravagant, false, free and unconventional.
Apparently directed, written and deceptive spontaneity of actions should not be: Julia is a film with a more complex structure than its lightness revealsa little space “YouTube-novel”who wants to hang out with him freely between the summer city and the coast, between auditions, evenings in breeding, evenings on the terrace and sunrise on the beach.
caro puts the story contemporary period Characterized by masks, gel sterilizers, economic crises but above all internal crises. Julia, wandering the streets of Rome in search of work, after a badly ended relationship, pursues an illusory dream of motherhood, wishing for feelings of freedom, lightness and love at the same time. With her backpack over her shoulder, she finds a home wherever she goes. Your meetings will fill his days by offering him a roof and a lot of support. This hot Roman summer is a time of hope and recovery for her as she finally realizes that she must be the driving force behind her life.
The work is part of the macro set of films shot in the Covid era, but the epidemic here does not contradict the plot. The signals result in the adoption of habits that we are all internalizing now. You can’t help but smile when the characters don’t know when to take off the mask, or how to greet a stranger for the first time. These details add tangibility to the work, which is very realistic in itself.
“The realism, in fact, is the most striking element. The film attempts to capture the truth and convey it to us with complete success. The subject of not being able to exist in the world is as complex as the character of Julia, but the portable camera faithfully reproduces mental and emotional crisis situations without falling into exaggeration or over-construction. Filming equipment was kept to a minimum, there was no make-up for the actors, and music only kicked in as the characters danced and sang songs. This natural and pure state of things gives the film a rare beauty. (My movies).
