La Sapienza

France, Italy 2014
In French and Italian / English subtitles
107 min
Suitable for all audiences

Forever faithful to a cinematography that is almost innately his own, Eugène Green takes us on a journey through Ticino and Italy in the search for that "something greater", as he himself defines it, that gives meaning to our existence. [...] The story of La Sapienza begins with Alexandre Schmitdt (Fabrizio Rongione), a French architect with a brilliant career behind him, and his wife, Aliénor (the wonderful Christelle Prot Landman), a sociologist specialized in disadvantaged social backgrounds. The couple share a deep concern for their respective professions. A void of silence has emerged between them that risks causing irreversible damage to their relationship. Aware of the need to change the situation, Alexandre decides to take up a project that is very important to him but abandoned for a long time, too long: to write a book on the Baroque architect Francesco Borromini.
