In a few days, on October 6th, A summer ago will arrive exclusively on Sky and streaming only on NOW (THE SPECIAL – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW). The Sky Original TV series tells the story of a cold case that suddenly reopens, when, 30 years after the disappearance of a young girl, her body is found, and Elio, the last one to have been with him, becomes the prime suspect in the murder. And it is in this context that Elio, following an accident, awakens in the body of his 18-year-old self, returning to that summer of 1990.
Authors and actors in the video
A mystery and a thriller, but also a series about memories that pays homage to a special summer and era. Sky created a special with authors and protagonists to take the viewer behind the scenes of A summer ago, you can see the video at the top of this article. Speaking in the film are the directors Davide Marengo and Marta Savina, the screenwriters Michele Alberico, Massimo Bacchini and Valerio Cilio, the interpreters Lino Guanciale and Filippo Scotti (both in the role of Elio), Claudia Pandolfi (Costanza) and Paolo Pierobon ( Zancan).
BETWEEN PRESENT AND PAST
Theirs is the story of a story poised between present and past like its protagonist, who has given up part of his history to create a happy life and who now has to decide what to give up to recover something he has lost. The story of a man divided in two. And the series is also divided in two, making clear choices to tell the story of 1990: with Davide Manca’s photography which, through more vintage lenses, gives a brighter atmosphere for the 90s while with more modern lenses it gives a more gray in the present. And the work of the young cast was also notable, as they had to identify with an era that they had never experienced, moving away from digital and returning to analogue, putting away their smartphone to fish out their Walkman.
