Someone over there loves me, the docu-film by Mario Martone, a tribute to Massimo Troisi, will be presented at the 73rd Berlin International Film Festival in the Berlinale Special section. The feature film will be released in cinemas from February 23rd
Someone down there loves me is the personal journey of Mario Martone in the cinema of Massimo Troisi. By assembling the scenes of his films, Martone wants to highlight Troisi as a great director of our cinema even before being a great comic actor, and to do so he outlines his artistic parable from beginning to end, framing him in the climate of the years in which he trained and in the city common to the two directors, Naples. Some conversations intersect with the editing of the films, not with people who frequented Troisi, but with artists who loved him and were influenced by him, such as Francesco Piccolo, Paolo Sorrentino, Ficarra and Picone, critics who studied him, such as Goffredo Fofi and the riview Wild Trails, and two of the architects of his posthumous work, Il postino, Michael Radford and Roberto Perpignani. The exception is Anna Pavignano who wrote his films with Troisi and whom Martone wants to meet to investigate the creative processes from which they sprang, and who collaborates on the film by making precious unpublished materials available.
