The Cosa Nostra’s machinations in 1970s Palermo are just parts of everyday life for Arturo as he grows up in this rite-of-passage satire that flickers with humor and emotion. Popular TV satirist Pierfrancesco Diliberto (Pif) does a remarkable job negotiating the delicate balance in his terrific feature debut.
This complex collective/social film portrays one day, October 26, 2013, in the life of Italians, entirely shot by Italians – those who are happy, sad, in jail, or simply having meal with their family. Culled from over 44,000 submissions, the film serves as a time capsule of a single day in the life of ordinary Italians.
