IL FILM

"UNA SCONFINATA GIOVINEZZA "

Italy-2010, 98 min. Directed by Pupi AVATI

FILM IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Lino and his wife Chicca lead a happy life and are satisfied with their marriage and their careers. He is a sports editor and she is a professor of medieval languages. Their only regret is not having children but even that seems to have strengthened their relationship. Unexpectedly, Lino's memory problems aggravate until he is diagnosed with a degenerative illness affecting his brain cells. So begins the slow process of a man drifting from his present and regressing to his childhood. Throughout, Chicca stands by her husband, sharing his regression and nurses him as the child they never had.
