L'estate di Giacomo (Summer of Giacomo)
2011 - 78 min.- Romantic Docu-fictionDirector: Alessandro Comodin
Cast: Giacomo Zulian, Stefania Comodin, Barbara Colombo
Giacomo and Stefania are two teenagers hiking along the banks of the Tagliamento river, in the northeastern region of Friuli. The excursion soon becomes an exciting adventure: not only for the exploration of the woods, river and the abandoned cottages, but, above all, because of the growing curiosity Giacomo and Stefania have toward each other. The skin begins to burn, not just because of the sun’s heat. Summer is a season of life. The camera follows the deaf Giacomo and a childhood girlfriend Stefi closely -- in the woods, by the river -- without disrupting the mystery of their relationship which is a combination of restrained sensuality and childhood games. Many critics regard this lyrical and modest docu-fiction as the best Italian debut in years.
In Italian with English subtitles.
