by Antonio Ciano


His late mother tells him that often when he had the opportunity to be himself he didn’t take it, and so he’s dead as well. Giovanni, a successful 40 year old, has a change of character and begins to live up to his new, uncontrollable persona (identity).

“The risk of becoming conventional and succumbing to conventional role models and accepted values becomes an ever more serious one. The condition of a man who realises he too has a crooked nose becomes bitterly comic.”

Antonio Ciano (the director)
