Cinema Italia: The Landlords

15+ 90 MIN

Synopsis

[PADRONI DI CASA]
Equal parts drama, comedy and thriller, THE LANDLORDS is a riveting film from actor-turneddirector, Edoardo Gabbriellini (I AM LOVE) with a sensational cast including legendary real-life singer Gianni Morandi making a return to the big screen after 40 years.

Cosimo (Valerio Mastandrea, ESCORT IN LOVE ) and Elia (Elio Germano, MY BROTHER IS AN ONLY CHILD) are two young brothers dreaming of success in the construction business. They travel from Rome to a remote Apennines mountain village where they have been contracted to rebuild a villa for the retired singer Fausto Mieli (Morandi), a divisive local figure who is planning a comeback concert.

With their natural big city arrogance, Cosimo and Elia draw hostility from the locals, and in particular the male population. Tensions are further heightened as a young local woman, Adriana (Francesca Rabbi), flirts with Elia and dreams of running away with him.

Even in the film’s idyllic mountain setting there is a sense of foreboding throughout, as the conflict between outsiders and villagers subtly builds to a climax with repercussions for the whole community.
