Cinema: The turning point, an ‘Overtaking’ 3.0, but very dark

(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 25 – A ‘Sorpasso’ 3.0 contaminated by genres and very dark, but also a pleasant and beautiful film, this first work by Riccardo Antonaroli entitled LA SVOLTA which passes out of competition at the Turin Film Festival. And if the quote from Dino Risi’s 1962 work is declared – in the protagonist’s house there is a poster of the film – in LA SVOLTA we are faced with “a road movie from still” (the quote is in the production notes , ed) full of twists.

In the meantime, the Trintignant on duty is Ludovico (Brando Pacitto), a nerdy, shy boy and very talented (but doesn’t know it) cartoonist who always lives in the Garbatella house (another protagonist of this film).

On the other hand, there is not the usual Gassman, eternal young bullock and spoils females, but Jack (Andrea Lattanzi) the same age as Ludovico, grown up on the street, a tough guy, a petty criminal even if with a good heart.

Fresh from a robbery that ended badly, Jack swoops with a bag full of money into the clumsy Ludovico house and stays there for a few days, once he discovers that there are some ugly thugs in the service of the robbed, a real criminal (played by brother of art Tullio Sorrentino).

Now between the two boys it is not that it starts immediately well, but the abysmal difference between them in the end creates the miracle, Jack finally finds a friend and above all someone to guide, to help, to grow. And this is also thanks to a girl, a roommate of the building, loved by Ludovico among a thousand shynesses.

But Jack has too much money in his bag and he has stolen it from the wrong person and on his trail there is also an unprecedented Marcello Fonte in the role of a cold and ruthless killer. (HANDLE).
