Directorial debut for Claudia Gerini
As a versatile and curious actress, with more than 30 years of career behind her, Claudia Gerini could not escape the risky challenge of directing. She does it brilliantly with her new film entitled “Tapirulàn” (from 5 May in cinemas) produced by Milano Talent Factory in association with Attitude and Big Tree Movie Entertainment, in collaboration with Rai Cinema and Sky Cinema.

With respect to these syncopated calls, Emma always has an answer, a reassurance, except when her younger sister (Claudia Vismara) calls. Through the many video calls it is inevitable that, little by little, we begin to know a little about Emma, her life, her past, and also to glimpse a trauma that seems to have blocked her forever despite her psychology studies, bioenergetics is the his obsessive passion for running.
