Saremo giovani e bellissimi

Letizia Lamartire

Saturday 23 March – h 19.00 • Cinema Marconi


Isabella is seventeen years old and in the early nineties she recorded an album that had a huge success and that for an entire summer went on all the radios and televisions, then nothing. Twenty-three years later she sang those same songs in a local restaurant with her son Bruno, guitarist. It is because of the boy that her career has stopped, or at least that is what is told. With a little age difference, Bruno and Isabella seem more like brother and sister than mother and son. An unconventional and ramshackle family, the two are linked by a very close relationship, which sometimes gets morbid, with them feeling united against a world that does not understand them. This bond is broken when Bruno meets Arianna, a guitarist who suggests him to join her band. The golden cage of the symbiotic relationship between mother and child is now too narrow.
