35^ Lovers Film Festival
Special Event


by Giuseppe Bucci
Country: Italy
Year: 2020
Duration: 12'

Two actors with a strong age difference play the roles of emperor and slave on the stage, but in daily life they are a couple in crisis and things are diametrically opposite. The most adult is entangled in a voluntary cage of a broken marriage, the youngest in a joyless sexual bulimia. It will be the reading of a famous letter from Pliny that will give the way out. Or a new entry.
