Il Sindaco Del Rione Sanità (The Mayor of Rione Sanità)


Directed by Mario Martone

Antonio Barracano, a “man of honor” who knows how to distinguish between “good people and bad people”, is the “Mayor” of the Sanità district. With his charismatic influence and the help of his doctor friend, he administers justice according to his own criteria, outside the state and above the parties. Those who “keep saints” go to Heaven and those who don’t keep them go to Don Antonio, this is the rule. When Rafiluccio Santaniello, the baker’s son, determined to kill his father, Don Antonio, appears to him in despair, he recognizes in the young man the same feeling of revenge that had obsessed him as a boy and then changed him forever. The Mayor decides to intervene to reconcile father and son and save them both

Compromessi Sposi (You Can’t Kiss the Bride)


Directed by Francesco Miccichè
With Vincenzo Salemme, Diego Abatantuono, Dino Abbrescia, Rosita Celentano, Elda Alvigini

Ready to come to terms to go up to the altar? A young fashion blogger from Gaeta (Grace Ambrose) and a Milanese boy (Lorenzo Zurzolo) who aspires to be a songwriter would seem to have little in common, but when the spark of love strikes, every difference disappears. Within one night they decide to get married. Even their fathers have nothing in common: Gaetano (Vincenzo Salemme) is a rigid mayor of the South, Diego (Diego Abatantuono) is a wealthy entrepreneur from the North. If among the boys it was love immediately, among the future consu-in-laws it is hate at first sight. To unite them only one goal: to prevent the marriage of their children at all costs. In a battle played by all means and which will involve the whole family, will the paternal coalition succeed in averting the marriage of the children?

With Virginia Apicella, Pietra Montecorvino, Rosy Franzese, Pietro Ragusa, Franca Abategiovanni, Simone Borrelli, Gianfranco Gallo, Lola Bello

Nevia is 17: too old for the place where she lives and where she grew up before she was even a child. Petite and immature, she is a stubborn teenager, who grew up with her grandmother Nanà, aunt Lucia and her younger sister, Enza, in the Ponticelli container field. Nevia tries to be respected in a world where being born a woman does not offer any opportunity, on the contrary: she knows it, and protects herself from that femininity that hangs over her by hiding inside her sporty clothes and behind a rebellious attitude. Her days go by all the same, between small jobs and big responsibilities, contrasts with her grandmother and tenderness for her sister. Until one day the arrival of a circus bursts into the girl’s daily life, offering her an unexpected possibility …
