Darker than midnight
(Più buio di mezzanotte)
In Italian, English & French / English subtitles
Davide is different from other teenagers. Something makes him look
like a girl. Davide is fourteen when he runs away from home. His
intuition, leads him to choose Villa Bellini, the park in Catania, as a
refuge. The park is a world in and of itself, a world of the
marginalized, to which the rest of the city turns a blind eye. But one
day the past catches up to the present and Davide has to face the most
difficult choice, this time alone.
Fine tech work makes this low-budgeter look modern and festival-ready,
and the film should sail merrily on. … Michele Braga's music is subtle
but strongly controls the mood of scenes, many shot at night in the
confident camerawork of DP Piero Basso.
