Synopsis

The tranquil life of an ex-left-wing-terrorist from Italy who started anew in France is upended when the law preventing his extradition is unexpectedly lifted in the captivating drama. Italian superstar Giuseppe Battiston (Perfect Strangers LIFF16) is cast effectively against type in this debut feature from Annarita Zambrano. Left-wing French President Francois Mitterrand offered a safe haven for Italy’s extreme-left terrorists who promised they would better their lives in 1985. This so-called Mitterrand Doctrine remained in effect until 2002, when Paolo Persichetti was finally extradited to Italy. The protagonist of Zambrano’s film is the fictional Marco Lamberti (Battiston), whose precarious legal position in the film was directly inspired by Persichetti’s. Moving back and forth between Marco hiding out in the southern French boondocks with his Franceraised teenage daughter and the mother and sister he left behind in Italy —both families are clearly impacted by the actions stemming from his radical idealism several decades earlier. This is intelligent and emotionally accessible fare that fuses the individual and the political while plumbing questions of personal morality and state responsibility.
