ABOUT THE MOVIE

The Stuff of Dreams recounts the vicissitudes of a modest theatrical troupe castaway off the coast of a remote Mediterranean island together with dangerous members of the Camorra. From this premise, a comedy full of coup de théâtre develops, inspired by William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Eduardo De Filippo's Neapolitan translation of Shakespeare's masterpiece, all set amongst the pristine scenery of the island of Asinara. The core of the story is the universal theatre: through the sequence of events involving the theatre company, suddenly growing in number with the “abusive” entrance of the ferocious Camorristi, its most profound narrative comes to light, drawing upon the universal themes of love, crime, revenge, redemption and forgiveness.
