Synopsis

7 Giorni ‘7 Days’ is hopeful, moving, thoughtful and thought-provoking. If you have lost all hope in love and happiness, then watch Rolando Colla’s latest directorial effort that lays it all bare. Ivan (Bruno Todeschini) and Chiara (Alessia Barela) meet on a Sicilian island to prepare the wedding for Ivan’s brother and Chiara’s best friend. Despite the fact that Ivan is determined not to repeat the failure of his last relationship, and Chiara does not want to jeopardise her marriage, the two fall in love with each other. They resolve to live their relationship for only a few days and then break it off when the wedding guests arrive on the island. However, they made their plan, without taking love into account. This Sicilian landscape is nimbly and delicately captured by Lorenz Merz’s diaphanous soft focus photography, coupled with soulful close-ups that give the film an extra layer of bareness. A tale of growing up and discovery for adults; an Italian island-set ‘Bridges of Madison County’ of sorts. (Subtitles)         Italy/ Switzerland 2016 Rolando Colla 96m
