St. Petersburg, 1860. A member
of the imperial family is
assassinated.
A few days later, the writer Fëdor
Michajlovic Dostoevskij meets
with Gusiev, a young man
committed to a psychiatric
hospital. Gusiev confesses that he
took part in the terrorist plot and
reveals that his fellow
conspirators are planning to kill
another of the Tsar’s relatives.
The young man also gives
Dostoevsky the address of
Alexandra, their leader. The writer
must find her and convince her to
call off the new assassination
attempt.
The Martanos, a Southern
working-class family who live in
Turin, have the fortune to have
their daughter Emma. Emma
works for Fiat in a new sector, the
IT sector. She has worked hard
since she was a child to cancel all
trace of her origins and to make
her way to the top. She is about
to finish her Mathematics degree
and is planning to marry Silvio, a
manager in the company, who is
a widower and has a daughter. In
September 1980, Fiat announces
that it will be sacking fifteen
thousand employees. A long
strike takes place which lasts 35
days. During the conflicts
between employees and
managers, Emma finds herself
attracted to a young militant man
called Sergio.
This film was shot using one long
sequence shot. Even the
flashbacks do not interrupt the
continuous flow of the main
narrative. A hotel is the
background to the stories
reflected through the camera
lens. The lives of two people are
drastically changed in the space
of one and a half hours. In the
lower floors of a big hotel, a
young waitress meets a man in a
situation which threatens their
identities and certainties. It is the
story of Assunta, Lucia and her
father. He is a man expecting to
meet his daughter after twenty
years but finds a stranger who
has taken over her identity.
Italy’s separate peace with the
Allies in September of 1943 brings
an SS unit to the Hotel Meina, a
Jewish owned establishment on
Italy’s Lake Maggiore, where 16
Italian-Greek Jews have taken
refuge. Cora, a seemingly frivolous
German woman who is actually on
a mission to help a political
refugee flee to Switzerland,
catches the eye of Captain Krassler,
the SS unit’s diehard Nazi leader.
Having completed her mission,
Cora returns from Switzerland to
try and help the Jews escape. But
Krassler receives orders from Milan
to eliminate them immediately. A
young woman by the name of Noa
is the only survivor of the first Nazi
massacre of Jews in Italy, while her
fiancé Julien perishes with the rest
of the group.

This film is a condemnation of the
racism and violence that exist in
all wars; it is also a tale of love
and friendship, with all the
intensity of such feelings in times
of war. It attempts to update the
neo-realist teachings of Rossellini,
De Santis and De Sica by
highlighting the setting against
which the characters act out their
story, so as to involve the
audience as completely as
possible.
Two friends keep meeting up in
the square where they had first
met as kids, and where they had
grown up together with the socalled “Zarri,” the boys of the
suburbs. By now they are leading
two very different lives - one
makes a living by dealing drugs,
the other has a regular job,
very tiring and poorly paid. But
they continue meeting up and
respecting each other. Until a
beautiful girl, whom they both
fall in love with, comes between
them.

decided, for different reasons, to
wear their country's uniform and
to volunteer for duty in the
Kosovo, find themselves in direct
contact with the suffering and
pain of a fratricidal war whose

On 20 March 1994, RAI news
reporter Ilaria Alpi and her
cameraman Miran Hrovatin were
killed in an ambush in
Mogadishu. The film traces what
happened to the two through a
maze of plot twists that contain
all the rhythm and gripping
tension of the best spy stories.
But there is one thing the viewer
should keep in mind: no part of
this story was made up.

A dazzling comedy with a
poignant streak set in the Rome
and Bologna of the 1920s. It tells
the story of Nello, 35, a shy and
dumpy man devoted to the

Bologna in the hope that living in
such an emancipated city will
allow him to find a wife at last,
thus giving the family its eagerly
awaited heir.
1978. The year there were three
Popes and a Socialist president in
Italy. Aldo Chimenti and his wife
Marisa move to Turin from a
small southern village. Marisa
devotes herself body and soul to
her police work, while Aldo, a
staunch Catholic and an
accountant, meets Biagio, a
hardened sinner, and Caimano,
Biagio's only friend, who seems
to live on another planet. The
three become involved in an
inquiry into a soccer gambling
ring that could cost them their
freedom but, at the same time,
win Marisa the promotion she
longs for...
Late one night, in his sad oneroom apartment, Mr. De Gregorio
hears desperate cries from the
entryway below. A prostitute has
split open the head of a abusive
client, and she asks the
bedraggled attorney to hide her.
He does so, discovering that the
woman's husband was killed on
the job, but the accident was
covered up, and so she received
nothing from the insurance. Mr.
De Gregorio files suit, at first
hoping to earn a small fee, but
later - after his faith in both the
law and himself is restored - in
order to wrong a right.
Tonio is a 12-year-old boy. One
day, he is knocked down by a
driver (Cinzia) who flees in panic
without helping him. Before

something that will change his
life. In hospital, he emerges from
his coma. There, wandering
through the corridors and rooms
during the night, he happens to
come across a dying man: the
line on the heartbeat monitor is
flat. But when Tonio steps over
and touches him, his heart starts
beating again normally. Has a
miracle occurred?

The scene is set in Ibiza. Amnesia,
a huge nightclub, is about to
open on the island. In this place,
at this time, the paths of our
characters meet.
Tommaso and Stefania meet, fall
in love and marry. A baby is born.
Their love is sincere, passionate
and strong. A love without
unknowns. Then frustrations at
work, a shortage of money and
an unexpected social isolation
slowly turn Stefania and
Tommaso into a couple like so
many others: they stop trying,
they no longer communicate,
they become up-tight without
knowing why. But maybe their
love is not dead: maybe it is only
stifled, buried under a thousand
problems that have nothing to
do with love.
Sergio and Angela’s child is going
to be born without a brain, but
they reject the idea of an
abortion. Believing in the
possibility of a miracle, they
name their baby Juan Miguel,
after a boy whose amputated leg
was miraculously restored by the
Virgin of Pilar in the 17th century.
On the day of the birth, a young
woman whom Sergio befriended
at the department store where he
works commits suicide. Detective
Sironi has to investigate. Juan
Miguel lives longer than
expected, while Detective Sironi's
case takes an unexpected turn...
Ernesto, a successful illustrator of
children’s fables, learns from
mysterious Father Pugni that his
mother is a candidate for
canonization. The news, so in
contrast with Ernesto’s life as an
atheist artist, makes him realize
how much he has been kept in
the dark with regard to his family.
In just few hours’ time, the
pressure and the scheming to
involve him in the beatification
process grow intense. His
memory of his mother (and her
smile) forces him to reconsider
the past and take a different
approach to the present.

a kidnapped politician. Giordani
gives Scalzi the key to the safe
deposit box where the tape is
hidden, but then a prison revolt,

but his brother is executed. And
so Ahmed sparks an uprising
that leads to the death of his

commit an act just as arbitrary as
the killing of his brother, and
with the same dire consequences
suffered by those who murdered
his brother.

Police Inspector Sciarra, on his
last day on the job, is assigned to
accompany Domenica, a girl
brutally attacked roughly a
year earlier, to identify the body
of the man thought to have
raped her. The child leads the
gruff, uncommunicative
Inspector on a pilgrimage
through the narrow streets and
alleyways of Naples, a "childlike"
city which, in much the same way
as Domenica, embodies the will
to go on living despite all the
pain. A strong emotional tie
arises between the two, giving
both a chance to pronounce a
last-ditch "yes" to life.
Jurij, a sight-impaired Hungarian
boy of 10 and a child prodigy, is
forced by his father to live cut off
from the outside world, the
better to hone his skills. But Jurij
refuses to perform. His enraged
father abandons him, and Jurij
ends up with Isabella, an Italian
psychotherapist who cares for
him. Then the father takes Jurij
back to Hungary to prepare for a
concert. At the performance,
however, Isabella’s arrival
stimulates him to play his own
music. Professor K. is horrified,
but the orchestra follows the lead
of the young virtuoso.
To forget about his upcoming
divorce from Giulia, Davide drinks
himself unconscious. But in a
nightmare, he and Giulia are put
on trial for the failure of their
marriage. The imaginary
prosecutors and the couple's
acquaintances, called to the
stand as witnesses, stress the fact
that their "true love" was nothing
a string of pointless attempts to
overcome the immaturity and
neuroses of the two. But then
Davide wakes up, at which point,
who can say whether the intense,
troubled love story between
Davide and Giulia is really over?
Naples, August. Eleven-year-old
Sofia and twelve-year-old Valerio
meet by chance. Both have been
placed in the custody of their
fathers, two men in their forties
who pretend that nothing is
wrong, often lying in an attempt
to give their children some kind
of security. But, with sentimental
and existential problems of their
own, they don't succeed. The
mothers are absent, apart from
brief, aggressive appearances
and phone calls. All of which
leaves Sofia and Valerio feeling
constantly threatened by the
instability of their family lives.

Summer 1944: Penny and her
sister Baby, whose parents have
died in a car accident, live with
their aunt and uncle in the
Tuscan countryside. The aunt is
married to a striking, GermanJewish man. Through the eyes of
Penny, we explore the fascinating
world which revolves around this
island of happiness: friendships
established with children of local
peasants, the first secretive love
interests, the growing awareness
of a cruel, inescapable reality, up
to the pointless extinction of the
entire Einstein family in the
summer of ’44.
A violent, lacerating clash
between two brothers ends
tragically. Live blood pumps
through the veins with an
obsessive rhythm, mimicking the
drums of Salento (way down
south in Italy's hellhole) which
beat incessantly since the
beginning of time. The drums
beat to calm the obscure force
running through the veins of the
inhabitants, it allows them to
cope with what life throws at
them.
“Rosa and Cornelia" is a story about
two young women, one an
aristocrat and the other a servant,
whose close contact creates a tie
that surpasses friendship. Through
each other, they discover their need
and capacity for love, plus their
weaknesses and courage, while also
becoming aware of the violence
they submit to under social
strictures. A bond is born that will
make them capable of extreme
actions. Despite the Eighteenth
Century setting, the theme of the
film is contemporary, involving
unconditional, primitive feelings.
Three women living in different
periods of Italian history struggle
to reconcile work and family.
Stella, in the 1940’s, is always
pregnant, making it hard to
achieve her dream of buying
some land. In the 1970’s
Sonia has to postpone her
wedding to go study in Rome.
And, in the 1990’s, Silvia finds
herself at odds with her husband,
who works in the same firm, over
labour relations.

Sicily, and tells the story of an 11year-old boy who becomes the
property of a digger, spending
his whole week living in a sulphur

everybody indulges in by
unspoken agreement – he
decides to escape to the sea he
has never seen.
The brother and mother of 12
year-old Vito have been killed by
his father, now in prison. Vito
turns to crime, becoming a killer

world with no importance.
