Directing notes

«If we could retrieve the intransigence of youth, what would make us indignant the most would be seeing what we have become»

Andre Gide

 

How many times did they tell you that you did not have a future and that you were all wrong?

Many times, too many, especially when you were teenagers.

And that’s what our protagonist rebelliously rejects with desperate vitality: a future opportunity other than a sad and badly paid job.

To achieve that, he’s willing to do everything he can and pay the price of his personal and out-of-the-pack choices.

A teenager who’s not a son of our time at all, who challenges everything and everyone to realize his ideals and become himself.

An out of time punk who goes against paternal authoritarianism and the hypocritical perbenism of a society dominated by the god of money, and who chooses to live in his own way.

A film about the absence of a father and about family lived as a choice and not like simple biological data.

Eventually, even a story of love and friendship with it’s inevitable disappointments and fleeting ravings.
