At the movies with L'Altra Italia: screening of "The Place"



At the movies with L'Altra Italia: screening of


A mysterious man sits everyday at the same table of the same restaurant, continuously receiving visitors. Each of his clients wants something, driven by a deep desire, a desire that is difficult to realize, if not impossible. There is however a price to pay for his services. Because the choices and the consequences concern only his clients, it is up to them to choose their boundaries, defining what is bad and what is good, completely free to choose their own fate. It is these visitors in need of miracles who return to tell how their lives proceed, weaving a plot in which their stories intertwine and not even this humble intermediary will succeed to remain impassive.
