La bocca del lupo

The Mouth of the Wolf

Pietro Marcello, Italy, 200935mm, Colour, 76'

Doing for his scruffy home-town what Terence Davies did so brilliantly for Liverpool in Of Time and the City, director Marcello blends footage new and old – some of it very old – into a dazzling, award-winning kaleidoscope of Genovese history. At its heart: one of the most unorthodox and moving love stories in recent cinema, involving a macho ex-con and a former drugaddict transsexual. Prepare to be dazzled.
