“My dad used to speak about himself, too. He would tell you he didn’t, but he did speak about himself. All you had to do was look and understand. In fact, just look and understand. That’s another plus of cinema: it’s there! Even when you’re not there any longer”.

Dino Risi is the director who enriched the so-called “Italian comedy” with stories, emotions and images. Marco Risi is the young man who challenged his father on his own ground and paved his own way. Can one be a son and also perceive the father as a master?

The result is a story at the crossroads of (cinema) epic and comedy: it soon becomes clear that the vitality of cinema between the 1950s and 1960s depended on an atmosphere of understanding, cohesion, perhaps even conflict, but everyone – everyone – was on the same stage.
