Full Synopsis
It was unlikely that Angelo?s and Alberto?s paths should ever have crossed. Angelo, a solid family man, is married with two kids and a third on the way. He runs his own garage providing a good life for his family. A very different personality, Alberto is a successful writer, but a loner, loudmouthed, clumsy and kind of crazy. As Angelo says, their ?engines seized? on the same night ? each suffering a heart attack. They met in the emergency room, befriending each other against all odds. Everything changes for them after their discharge from the hospital. The heart attack makes Angelo rightly fear for his family?s future. Alberto can not commit to the woman he loves and suffers from writer?s block. But when Angelo and Alberto are together, they feel better and stronger. As Alberto faces financial struggle, Angelo welcomes him into his family, introducing him to Rossana, his beautiful, strong wife, and Perla and Ayrton, their children. Alberto discovers what a family is and begins to feel its happiness. As Angelo health declines, fearing death, he devises a plan for the future: entrust his newfound friend with his dearest treasure ? his family.
From the novel by Umberto Cantarello, with the same name.
________________________________________
Angelo ? un giovane carrozziere che accumula beni, Alberto uno sceneggiatore di successo che spreca parole. Due mondi paralleli quelli dei due protagonisti che si incrociano quando la vita li rende fragili, pi? vicini alla morte. Entrambi colti da un infarto in una sera qualunque, vengono ricoverati nella stessa notte e nella stessa clinica. Si incontrano nel reparto di terapia intensiva, vicini di letto, Angelo e Alberto scoprono una zona franca, dove scambiarsi emozioni, ricaricare il cuore e risollevare lo spirito. La paura della morte li rende simili e le diversit? vengono attutite. Nasce un?amicizia, vera profonda, forse l?unica per entrambi. Davanti alla morte l?uomo si sente solo e sapere che c?? qualcuno che ti capisce, che vive i tuoi stessi dolori, e le stesse sensazioni, paure, ti rende meno fragile, e quella persona apparentemente sconosciuta irrompe nella tua vita e non riesci pi? a farne a meno
Angelo, padre di due figli e marito innamorato di Rossana, organizza il disagio seguito alla malattia, Alberto, fidanzato senza pi? voglie di Carla, esplora la sua infelicit? e cerca parole per raccontarla. Dimessi dalla clinica, la casa di Angelo diventer? l'officina in cui mettere a punto il motore, il ricovero dove il Pigneto incontra la prima circoscrizione, il laboratorio dove lo scrittore ritrova la curiosit? sincera di un'osservazione partecipe.
