Italian greats Marco Giallini and Valerio Mastandrea star in this exceptional remake of the multi award-winning Spanish-Argentinian favourite Truman, imbued with a very Roman flavour.
When theatre actor Giuliano (Giallini) receives an unexpected visit from his childhood friend Tommasso (Mastandrea), the encounter is bittersweet. This reunion is their first meeting in many years, triggered by Giuliano’s failing health and his decision to forgo treatment. Instead he is focussed on putting his affairs in order: distributing possessions, reconciling past disputes, and, most importantly, finding a home for his beloved canine, Pato. Over four days, the two men walk the streets of Rome, visiting bookshops, restaurants, veterinarians and friends, examining their lives and speculating on what the future holds.
This is a funny, heartfelt portrait of friendship, and life’s unexpected ups and downs that retains the strength and modesty of the original film, while contributing additional moments of melancholy, humour and typical Roman disenchantment.
