Kryptonite! is the directorial debut of highly regarded novelist and screenwriter Ivan Cotroneo (I Am Love). It’s 1970s Naples and bullied, nine year-old Peppino is watching the world around him as his extended dysfunctional family changes. Psychedelic flower power and hippie love is threatening the traditional southern Italian family. Dad is having an affair and Mom has taken to her bed with depression. Super-mod brother and sister Titina and Salvatore take Peppino under their wings, introducing him to demonstrations and love-ins and caped superhero Gennaro visits Peppino after Gennaro is killed by the number 12 bus. The imaginary appearances of Peppino’s older cousin help the young boy navigate the complicated adult world, as well as encouraging Peppino to accept his individuality in spite of what is said at home and at school.
With Italian versions of period classic songs, all the colors of peace and love amid the city’s backstreets, seventies-set Kryptonite! is a fresh, tender and funny tale exploring love, diversity and dreams.
In Italian with English subtitles.
