Another title set to be wagered on by Vision Distribution at the EFM comes courtesy of the veteran of Italian cinema Pupi Avati: We Still Talk, which is based upon Giuseppe Sgarbi’s novel of the same name, is produced by Bartlebyfilm and Vision Distribution in league with Duea Film and was broadcast on Sky Cinema Italy as a Sky Original movie at the beginning of February. Renato Pozzetto and Stefania Sandrelli play Nino and Caterina who have been married for sixty-five years and have been deeply in love since the moment their eyes first met. Upon Caterina’s death, in the hope of helping her father move past the loss of the woman he’s loved all his life, their daughter puts him in touch with Amicangelo, an editor who aspires to be a novelist, with a view to the latter using her father’s memories to write a book about her parents’ love. Amicangelo accepts, but only out of financial necessity, and he immediately clashes with the father who seems his polar opposite. But with every passing day the two men grow closer, until their relationship turns into a veritable friendship.
The King's Musketeers 2, on the other hand, directed by Giovanni Veronesi, is a period dramedy sequel to The King’s Musketeers [+lee también:
